Visitors to the Madho Singh Trust Museum located in the Kota Garh or Kota City Palace complex have to pass through this beautifully painted Hathi Pol or Elephant Gate.
The Museum has a collection of arms, coins, photographs, etc., but its real treasure are it's wall paintings which cover entire rooms.
From delicate Persianate style to the more robust Deccani to copies of Ravi Varma paintings to even a set of European style portraits; from mythological themes to hunting scenes to fantastical imagery; from pilgrim maps to cityscapes to mythical landscapes; from delicate colours and brush strokes to bolder use of colours — the painted rooms of the Kota Garh, which are spread over 3 floors, have it all.
Read about and see more of these paintings in the latest post n my blog. #LinkInProfile#LinkInBio .
