What to expect

The Salar Jung Museum in Hyderabad is home to one of the biggest one-man collections of antiques of the world. Exhibits include Mughal miniatures, Persian carpets, Japanese lacquerware, Chinese porcelain and famous statues, including the Veiled Rebecca and Marguerite and Mephistopheles. Amongst numerous other fabulous exhibits, Aurangzeb’s sword is also displayed here. The museum is located at Dar-ul-Shifa, on the southern bank of the Musi River in the city of Hyderabad, Telangana, India.

Originally a private art collection of the Salar Jung family, it was endowed to the nation after the death of Salar Jung III. It was inaugurated on 16 December 1951. The museum building, semicircular in shape with 38 galleries, spread on two floors, displays only a part of the original collection. The ground floor has 20 galleries and the first floor has 18 galleries. The exhibits on different subjects are displayed in separate galleries. Each gallery is huge and has many artifacts on display including ones dating back to the 4th century. Some of the major collections have been classified as Indian, Western, Eastern and Quran collections. Also, a variety and array of clocks greet the visitor in the clock room.
