  • Another hidden treasure. You can visit this place without appointment on their website. It's a factory manufacturing unit of some of most expensive jewelry and also exhibition of Hukka, clothes, carpets and stones manuscripts spectacles from 19th century. You won't find any pictures on net. It's beyond infinity experience . Look out for Harjeet Kaur who would give you best guided tour
  • Magnificent and overwhelming are the words that come in mind as you enter and browse through the stuff presented here. From vintage hookah pipes to gems, jewellery and antique watches, its wonderful how one person could collect such a diverse collection in one lifetime. Situated below the museum is the manufacturing facility of Gem Plaza which is equally stunning and well organized. You can also buy stuff just outside the museum if you fancy colored stones and compressed carbon atoms. Remember to increase that credit card limit though. Happy Gawking!
