Archaeological Museum, Jageshwar

Archaeological Museum, Jageshwar Overview

The Archaeological Museum, maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India, houses yet another exquisite collection of the anciently carved idols and old world representations of the deities.

With galleries containing pieces dating back to the 9th and 13th century AD, the most prominent figures are those of Uma-Maheshwar (regional names for Parvati-Shiva) and the Sun god and the Nav Graha, or the nine planets, that figure as gods in the Hindu mythology. The museum is undoubtedly worth a visit, not only for those who belong to the religion, or are intrigued by its complexities, but by everyone who wants to know the true roots of the third largest religion in the world. The most noteworthy figure is of one of the rulers of the area, Pona Raja, who is still well respected and remembered in the region.
