view web site ›'s insider take:

Imposing cast-iron gates near Regal Circle lead into lush gardens peppered with ancient statues of various Hindu gods. Behind it all stands the grand old Prince of Wales Museum, a majestic blend of British, Hindu, and Islamic architectural traditions. The building stone was laid by the Prince of Wales when he visited the city in 1905, and it served as a military hospital during World War I. The museum has an impressive store of opulent artifacts from India's former princely states, a beautiful collection of miniature paintings, and Mughal emperor Akbar's dazzling personal armor. The 90-minute digital audio tour of 38 key displays is highly recommended.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 11 am to 5:30 pm.
