This promotion is meant to entice the customers to try their service offering. [...]

[...] Above the central arched entrance rises a huge dome, tiled in white and blue flecks, supported on a lotus-petal base. Galleries There's a lot to see in the Museum. It's a disservice if one rushes to see it all in one go. To walk around the key gallery is like experiencing 5,000 years of Indian art in a capsule. The plan of the Museum is simple, with a central hall from which the staircase leads to the two upper floors with galleries branching out on the right and left. [...]
