About Amar Mahal Palace & Museum in Jammu City

To get a glimpse into the royal past of Jammu & Kashmir, one should visit the Amar Mahal, a famous tourist attraction in Jammu city. Once a palace constructed for Raja Amar Singh in the 19th century, it is now a museum housing several important artefacts, the most attractive one of which is the Golden Throne weighing 120 kilograms. The throne is well guarded and although it is kept inside a locked room, it is visible through the panels. Other artefacts on display are Kangra miniature paintings, a library housing 25,000 historic books and a valuable collection of precious art. Since it was the last seat of the Dogra emperor, a wonderful collection of pictures of the royal family is also on display. Inside the museum compound is an imposing statue of Maharaja Gulab Singh, the founder of royal Dogra dynasty & the first Maharaja of the princely state of Jammu and Kashmir. You can also get a view of the Tawi River from the museum.
