Bharat Kala Bhawan

Within the campus of the Banaras Hindu University is the Bharat Kala Bhavan, an art museum that displays India’s heritage at its best by showcasing different facets of the Indian culture, civilization, and history. It houses a wide collection of paintings, textiles and costumes, decorative art, Hindu and Buddhist sculptures and other materials of archaeological importance. The Bharat Kala Bhavan was established in the year 1920 A.D. It is an old museum and contains artifacts, scriptures, historic and some pre historic items. The main hall of the Bharat Kala Bhavan has an image of Lord Krishna, lifting Mount Govardhana. There are many other illustrations in the Bharat Kala Bhavan which reflect the prevalence of the Krishna religious group in Kashi during the 15th and 16th century. The museum is divided into several sections, some of which are Archaeological gallery, Mahamana Malaviya gallery, Nicholas Roerich gallery, numismatic gallery, Chhavi (painting gallery), Nidhi (treasures gallery), Sculpture gallery, Decorative Art gallery and Banaras through the Ages gallery. The Mahamana Malaviya gallery is dedicated to Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, the founder of the Banaras Hindu University. This gallery exhibits the important events of his life through photographs, books by him and on him, and other collections. The Nidhi gallery displays crystal collection, coins, beads, terracotta figurines, precious and semiprecious stones, jade objects, silver, enamel and rare jewellery. Bharat Kala Bhavan has a huge assortment of miniature paintings from the courts of Mughals and other kingdoms also. The ancient terracotta figurines and palm-leaf manuscripts showcased in the museum are noteworthy. Bharat Kala Bhavan is a remarkable attraction in the city of Varanasi, and draws many visitors.
