  • Its all about maharaja ranjit singh's life (a great sikh emperor).there u can see all about maharaja ranjit singh such as weapons,dresses and coins etc.interesting place for history lovers,located in company bagh garden,in the center of city amritsar.
  • Excellent centre of knowledge on the life of one of the greatest Sikh ruler Maharaja Ranjit Singh ..Due to his visionary ruling British were unable to capture Punjab for many years though they were the rulers of whole India except Punjab .So an eye into the Maharajas life and rule teaches us a lot and this place is best for learning and going back into Maharajas Era.
  • Good panaroma museum created, but very hot, they do not operate air conditioning, worth seeing for fans of Maharana Ranjit Singhji .....
  • Maharajah Ranjit Singh Panorama is housed within the Maharajah Ranjit Singh Museum which is located at Company Bagh also known as Ram Bagh. The place has a fantastic collection of Paintings, Coins, Weapons, literature & historical things. Beautiful panorama encapsulated the life of of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Important events from the life of Maharaja Ranjit Singh are depicted thorugh paintings and recreated through statues and Sound. Very Informative kids can learn history in an interesting manner . There is nominal entry fee of Rs.10. Place definitely worth a Visit .
  • It's definitely worth a visit. Though, it is not maintained the way it should be. You must see the Panaroma on the first floor.
