About Taj Museum

Taj Museum is a small, but excellent museum inside the Taj complex. Situated on the western side of the Taj gardens, the museum is a double storied structure with a quadrangle projection outside. Divided into three galleries, the museum houses the original Mughal miniature paintings, including a pair of 17th-century ivory portraits of Emperor Shah Jahan and wife Mumtaz Mahal. The first gallery contains plans and drawing of the architecture of Taj Mahal. The second gallery houses jade and porcelain objects like Quaran stand and a beautiful ornamented spouted vase carved out of Jade, bowl and dishes of Celadon ware. Ancient fighting tools like swords, daggers and a world map showing the places from where stones and semi-precious stones were imported for the construction of Taj Mahal. In the third gallery lies important royal farmans and documents, and the specimen of famous calligraphy of the Shah Jahan period. There is also two paintings of Taj Mahal by British artist Daniel in the year 1795 AD. You can also find some very well preserved gold and silver coins from that era. If you're enjoy a little historical treat, you know where to go!
