Valley Of The Dolls
One can find just about every kind of a doll one needs to see in Shankar's International Dolls Museum. There are about 6,000 dolls collected from over 85 countries and a third of the collection has been gathered from different parts of India. Each doll is resplendently dressed in costumes that represent the country or the region they come from.
The museum is special because it allows a certain kind of a cultural exchange. Through dolls it presents an interesting way to learn about different cultures of various countries. The brilliant costumes, the varied jewellery of the dolls narrate intriguing stories of different cultures, their climate, their folklore and their mythologies.
There is also a workshop and a Doll Designing Centre in the museum. One can buy dolls from here too. So come and visit this museum and let go the child in you.
The museum is closed on Mondays.
