Virasat-e-Khalsa Museum Punjab – The Worthy Moments in the Museum

When I woke up in the morning it was 8 AM in the morning and all were very active. It was my last day at Amritsar and I was quite happy that I could cover all destinations in my agenda. Being the last day in Amritsar I thought of covering Virasat-e-Khalsa Museum which wis 400 km away from the hotel.

I booked my cab and planned to visit Virasat-e-Khalsa Museum Punjab. The Museum is located in near Kila Anandgarh Sahib. The cab took me through the national Museum and we reached the place after 3 and half hours of journey. In between we had small stopovers for our refreshments.

I was thinking to what extent the historical backdrop of Sikh was as the gallery was commending the 500-year old history. I felt there was a lot to think about the structural planning of the building. Intended to possess the Western Complex and Eastern Complex, the historical center incorporates two coordinated arrangements of structures.

The museum which showcasing the rich Sikh history is one of the famous attractions in Punjab. We strolled into the Western complex to go through the Museum that showcased the lives of Guru Nanak Dev Ji, Guru Angad Dev Ji, Guru Amar Das Ji, Guru Ramdas Ji, Guru Arjan Dev Ji, et cetera. Besides, we discovered a library with a huge room and an assembly hall to lead different displays.

The Eastern complex too has displays of Sikh legacy, different offices, for example, a cafeteria, restroom, ect. More than touring the museum provides information of individuals and their dreams of extraordinary masters in Punjab. Their message for peace and adoration are retold each time to the persons who visits here.

The historical center was open from 8 am and entrance is free. While strolling in I checked the timing and it said the section is shut at 8 pm. I returned in the evening after a blissful day in the museum exploring the rich history of Sikh legacy. I packed my things to get back to my routines.
