  • The only task museum in Asia, it offers a brief history of armoured vehicles from across the world. Though it needs a little more maintenance, the collection is really good. Take time to read all the descriptions and you'll get a fair idea about the history of tanks from across the globe.
  • Amazing range of tanks and history. Not to mention that you visit this place and you are bound to have added respect for the Indian Army
