Amar Mahal Palace in Jammu

The Amar Mahal Palace, built in 1862 in a unique, French-chateau style of architecture. Located on a hill overlooking the Tawi river. 4 rooms of the palace have been converted into art galleries and historic museums, depicting the royal history of Jammu.

The star of this museum is the golden throne of Jammu, weighing a whopping 120 kgs, all pure gold. The art collection here is also quite impressive, with paintings of M F Hussain and Laxman Pai on display, among other famous Indian contemporary painters.

"A nice little museum which is located just outside the city of Jammu on the way to the famous Vaishno Devi Temple (Katra). The museum is well maintained(see pics). Good boarding and lodging facilities are available here including restaurant, bar and a couple of lawns which are rented out for events and parties. Good view of Tawi river flowing alongside (see pic of 'tawi river'). Bon Voyage."

"Ground floor includes paintings but the upper floor isn't worth visiting when it's charged at 100 per person. Absolutely worthless. Also I wonder why so many rooms are kept closed if it's planned to be made as a public museum."

"I liked the paintings kept in the museum. Such fine detailing of the painting makes them unique. And there is a small story which they depict. There is one painting of Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru which gives the optical illusion that its shoes will point in whatever direction we face it."
