  • Worth visiting this art gallery. One can easily locate and reach. Situated next to national stadium India Gate. The ticket cost only 20rs. The Art gallery is spread to 3 storeys. aesthetically and artistically placed on each storey. So many art forms , art and painting are on showcase from many renounce personalities and some unknown artist as well. Taking photos of art gallery is allowed but taking personal photo is prohibited. It takes 2-3hrs to view all the art if you're really interested.
  • It was a great experience observing such amazing art, I'm at a loss for words after seeing the huge amount of art pieces in this art gallery, The 1st floor was my favourite out of them all. It will take up minimum 3 hours of your time if you DON'T go through the gallery thoroughly enough and read the description/history of the art piece. There's a lot of walking to be done so you're bound to get hungry, what other place is there to hangout after this other than Khan Market! Cheers ✌️
