Another feather in the cap of Mussoorie is the newly inaugurated K Dev Bhoomi Wax Museum, inspired by Madame Tussauds in London. Being the fourth of its kind in India after Kanyakumari, Kolkata and Lonavala, the museum needs no introduction. Situated in the premises of Company Garden, just 3 kms ahead of The Mall, the museum boasts of lifelike wax statues of both domestic and international personalities, some of which have been imported from the other branches. So little has K Dev Bhoomi Wax Museum been publicised that the tourists are overwhelmed with joy on discovering it.
The man behind the concept- Mr Sabharwal, is said to have keenly observed Madame Tussauds before coming up with the idea in 2015. The wax museum houses a total of 26 statues of some prominent personalities. Currently, Gandhiji can be seen sitting along with his charkha; not far away is a standing statue of Mother Teresa and Albert Einstein. Alongside, you can find Hitler with his pet expression and clenched fists, not to forget the visionaries- Jawaharlal Nehru and Swami Vivekananda. Also, there are figurines of Angelina Jolie and Michael Jackson among several others. So, if you’ve always wanted to visit Madame Tussauds but could not for reasons whatsoever, here is an absolutely unique opportunity for you. However, do not expect a lot from this attraction as it only promises a replica and not the life-like statues at Madame Tussauds.
