  • It's historic place we see the photographs of old people and it's exactly located next to the library. Many events are conducted here and place is well maintained and building architecture are well maintained and people use to check the building if any repairs has to be done. Gallerys are really so awesome and people here are good at taking care of the pictures and art stuff. One should see if they want to know abt history.
  • Great place to see the historical British leaders photograph also many indian great human who served the nation. Specially M. Gandhi Sir!!
  • I love this place and have spent a lot of time here. While I worked on Sulekha, I used to go here often. We even visit here during our Lunch break. This place is so cool, a good natural looking atmosphere. The most important arts collections made this place as important. All tourists must visit here and cherish the moments & valuable collections.
  • Good place to a Sunday for history enthusiasts. Wide collection of artifacts from southern rulers and much more.
