About Jalan Museum

One of the only two private museums in Bihar, Jalan Museum, was constructed in English and Dutch style of architecture near the banks of the Ganges. The extraordinary home to Bihar’s ancient heritage, this museum was established by Diwan Bahadur Radha Krishna Jalan who also took care of the exhibits. Captivated by the beauty of the place, Jalan acquired a part of the Quila Fort in order to set up the museum. The edifice was damaged in an earthquake but later it was transformed into a museum. Jalan Museum is home to nearly 10,000 artifacts from various parts of the world. The showcased objects belonging to various periods, but mostly belonging to the modern times includes furniture, sculptures, and idols made of stone, terracotta, metal, glass, porcelain and ivory. Some of the art objects are European whereas, a few from far and near East Asian countries. The major attractions of this museum include palanquin of Tipu Sultan, Chinese idols from the seventh century, Humayun’s Sword and exquisite crystals from Venice along with precious Jade stones dating back to 200 BC.
