Mumbai - 'King Shivaji Museum'

Because of the large amount of work my new series has a slow start.
Also this year I was in Mumbai in the beginning and at the end of my trip. This time only for a short time.

The picture shows the King Shivaji Museum, officially the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya and formerly named the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India.
I visited it last year but now I have noticed that I have not shown a picture of it.

As this museum is located in the Mahatma Gandhi Road in Fort, a large avenue in the district where my hotel was, I passed it again and this time I show you a picture of it.

The building is built in the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture, incorporating elements of other styles.
The museum houses approximately 50.000 artefacts of ancient Indian history as well as objects from foreign lands, categorized primarily into three sections: Art, Archaeology and Natural History.
On the foreground a sleeping Buddha.
