    When I was a Junior Architect, I had a boss from Baroda or Vadodara. He had graduated from MS University and was a fan of the maharaja. With him I visited his palace, but missed the museum. Now I know what I missed!

    It was a treat to see the images of the museum! It’s awesome! Thanks a lot for this post!

    PS: I should reimburse you the Rs 100, which you paid for the photography rights, just for the sheer pleasure and beauty! 😀
