    Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum
    Date of visit: 15-July-2023

    Our family visit to Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum in Pune was an unforgettable experience! From the moment we entered, we were enthralled by the vast array of captivating artifacts and artwork. Our 8-year-old daughter was wide-eyed with wonder, exploring the rich cultural heritage of India. The museum's thoughtful organization made it engaging for all ages. The staff was friendly and helpful, adding to the warmth of the visit. The museum beautifully preserves and showcases India's artistic legacy, making it both educational and enjoyable. We left with cherished memories and a deeper appreciation for our country's history. Highly recommended for families!

    Our tour company had set us up with a guide for half-day, while on a trip to see friends in Pune. We had asked to see this Jain Temple, and really enjoyed the experience. A member of the temple was able to tell us more about it, and our guide translated. The priests were preparing for a ceremony (pooja) and allowed us to see the offerings and the interior of the temple. Pictures of the interior are not allowed, however the beautiful statues and ornate columns and ceilings were an impressive part of the visit.
