  • When we arrived at this great museum, it turned out to be closed. No one to confess. After some phone calls, an official came to the key and made the light for us in the wings with bronze from the period of the Chola Empire, for which we mainly came. Why the museum was close, he couldn't tell us. But don't complain, we were inside. The collection Chola bronzes proved enormous and of high quality. After a few hours of having enjoyed the entrance door itself locked again. Key we could just leave in the lock, was told us. Beautiful collection, worth a visit, just call to ask for opening hours.

  • We go to the National Museum of Chennai to find works of art and clarifications on the history of India and its pantheon... and we find a beautiful place, totally abandoned, with a heterogeneous and outdated collection.
