VECHAAR-AN UTENSILS MUSEUM


Vechaar-Vishalla Environmental Centre for Heritage of Art Architechture and Research Is a Beautiful place for all lovers of Indian Heritage.It is an utensils museum, started in 1981 by Mr. Surendra Patel in  Ahmedabad.

The architecture of the hut-like museum building is quadrangular in shape. It is mud plastered all over, like a hut. There are four small water bodies in the center of the museum, which gives a cooling effect to the whole atmosphere. At the center of these water bodies is a small temple of Lord Shiva . The utensils in the museum are not guarded and directly for the public to enjoy the touch and feel of an era gone by.
They have a beautiful website: www.vechaar.com






Yearning for more?? I knew it.Do make a trip to this wonderful place and let me know how you liked it!!
