Lovely collection of Buddhist artifacts--of note is the Ashokan pillar and the Monk Bala patronized statue with umbrella (aside). Great for the art history lover as well as the cultural enthusiast. The collection is well-labeled and the gallery is clean and spacious. A must visit in Sarnath.

The museum had a good collection of artefacts - Wonderful ride in motor boat to get to the fort

Call for Hours

Interesting peek to a glamorous past. The fort is now a dusty museum that shows some of the wealth and lifestyle of former rulers of this region. A little gloomy, however worth the 200 INR entrance fee and two hours visit.
