  • Really well maintained gallery. It's completely air conditioned inside. The entry fee is just ₹20 for adults. The sculptures inside are really interesting, and each one has an information board beside it. The surroundings are also beautiful and filled with trees. The cafeteria inside serves good food too. Photography is only allowed outside the building, and not inside.
  • Has always been my favorite place. For all the forms of art and study. Meeting new people and new ideas. Very peaceful environment with a water body. Great exhibitions always. Please enhance your cafeteria food. If not the food at least the service person. The one at the billing. Argues a lot over small thing. Was not expecting that in an open minded "art gallery" set up.
