About Amar Mahal Palace Museum

Raja Amar Singh built himself the palace of Amar Mahal in the 19th century. He was a king of the Dogra Dynasty. The architecture of the palace is completely French, considering it was designed by a French architect. Today, four rooms of this palace have been converted into a mini museum and is a popular tourist attraction as well. This is because the palace was donated to the Hari- Tara charitable trust for use as a museum due to its spacious interiors and hilltop location overlooking the Tawai River. The Amar Mahal museum is has a bevy of art collection on display. Some of the paintings displayed here are by most renowned artists like MF Hussain and Laxman Pai. Other Indian contemporary artists’ work are also on display. Art lovers will swoon at the perfect use of pastels, water colors and pencil shading. Apart from this, the museum has an impressive exhibit of 25,000 antique books which are housed in a library. The star of the museum? It is a 120 kilograms golden Jammu throne made up entirely with gold! Rare art collections, Kangri and Pahari(pahar means mountain) Paintings are also popular among the onlookers. The latter are mainly done in miniature form, this is something unique you will get to see. Every painting has something to tell. Most of them mainly depict tales from Hindu epic Mahabharata and other folklore. Do enjoy a little heritage walk around the palace (this is organized by the museum), know about Jammu history and culture.

Historical Context: This Palace was constructed in 19th century by Raja Amar Singh.
