Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya Bhopal Has Some Really Intriguing Exhibits

After visiting the Regional Science Center on the previous day, I preferred to stay in the hotel room for the rest of the day. However, in the evening I did take a small walk on the road outside. On the next day, I was feeling absolutely refreshed and had great energy. Looking forward to explore more of Bhopal, I packed my camera into my bag and headed out.

The Sangrahalaya is a Sanskrit word for museum. Though after the science centre I was really in the mood to visit a museum but upon hearing that it is located at a good location and the view from that area is amazing I decided to check it out.

The next destination on the list was the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya in Bhopal. The Sangrahalaya was slightly far from my hotel, I had to hire a cab and travel for almost an hour and half to reach the place.

Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Manav Sangrahalaya is a museum of anthropology. The museum and its displays completely revolve around this them. Anthropology is basically the study of humans thus it is also known as the National Museum of Humankind. There is no entry fee and the museum stays open daily from 9 to 8pm.

The museum is spread across a really huge area, I think it was about 200 acres approx. since the entire museum is situated on the Shyamla Hills, the view from the hill was quite beautiful many of the cities lakes can also be seen from here,

Looking at the city from the hill, it definitely looks like the City of lakes as it is popularly known. The exhibits at the museums are mainly divided into three sections- galleries, Open exhibitions, and Temporary exhibitions. The exhibits were clearly displayed and named thus providing some background information about them.

Like the Science centre, this place is also very informative. Since it so huge it took me about 2 hours to fully explore it.
