About Indore Museum in Indore
Indore Museum, also known as the Indore Central Museum, displays some of the rare and elegant collections of art and historically significant items that make the museum worth a visit if you’re a history enthusiast or even remotely interested in the country’s past and its culture. It is located near the General Post Office in Indore. The Museum exhibits the finest collection of Parmar sculptures from Hinglajgarh. The Parmar style actually originated here only. Its main features include proportioned figures, careful and intricate ornamentation and depictions in stone.
The Central Museum Indore also has one of the best collections of medieval and pre-medieval Hindu and Jain sculpture in Madhya Pradesh. These sculptures have been finely carved and are as old as the reign of the Guptas to the Paramanas. They have been collected from the ruins of the 11th-12th century temples at Hinglajgarh. They portray Harihara, Shiva and Parvati seated on Nandi, standing Parvati and a damaged Chamunda. Among the architectural remains preserved in the museum, the most remarkable is a doorframe, richly adorned with figures and ornamentation. You can hire a professional guide at the Museum for help going around it, if you please.
There are exhibits from western Malwa as well, which include stone tools, quartz sickles, ornaments and items of domestic use. All the Hindu mythological carvings have been displayed in Gallery II. So treat the explorer in you with a visit to this magnificent place with your family or friends and enjoy learning about the fascinating history of India and the rich civilization that flourished here in the prehistoric age. The extravagant treasure of history at the Central Museum In Indore is bound to leave you fascinated and spellbound if you’re interested enough.
