The great deeds of the Lion of Punjab are exhibited in the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, Amritsar. It depicts the life and history of the great Sikh soldier, who is undoubtedly one of the bravest sons of Punjab. Set up and conceptualized by the National Council of Science Museums, it spreads out over an area of 4.5 acres in the garden of historical Rambagh Heritage, which in turn is located in the heart of the city. It is the landmark of Amritsar with some unique architectural designs. The tall cylindrical design of the building is enveloped with a green garden and served as the Maharaja’s Summer Palace. Tall giant paintings of 100 meters length and 12 meters height reflect the six major journeys of battleship of Maharaja.

The immense feeling of Sikhism inside me was abiding by the great endeavor of the Maharaja. The supplementary sound effects of the battleship enhanced the experience of the visitors. A panoramic three-dimensional presentation is recreated in the hall where the meeting of Maharaja can be seen with the nobles, chiefs and poor people. Through the small eight dioramas in the ground floor halls, there is the milestone of the Maharaja’s vibrant life span. With the help of the other sketches, murals and canvas paintings, the yarn allied with Maharaja is depicted. The museum also houses a touch screen cabin, which caters to the details of the Maharaja’s contribution to the religion of Sikhism. Moreover, the museum stands on the immortal life history of the Lion of Punjab and this pride identity is a heart touching experience to all the visitors, especially Indians.



Though I had read a lot about the actions and conducts of Maharaja, but going through these typical paintings and other exhibits, I got a deeper insight into the historical roots of the great warrior of Punjab. I was grateful to the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum, Amritsar, which enabled me to learn so much about the courageous man.
