Five Indian museums feature among the best 25 in Asia topped by Leh’s “Hall of Fame” which has been described as “must-visit” place by travellers in a survey.The other top four most rated museums of India are – Bagore Ki Haveli (Udaipur), Victoria Memorial Hall (Kolkata), Salar Jung Museum (Hyderabad) and Jaisalmer War Museum (Jaisalmer). Meanwhile Darshan Museum (Pune), Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures (Shillong), Heritage Transport Museum (Taoru), Siddhagiri Museum (Kolhapur) and Gandhi Smriti (New Delhi) complete the Top 10 list.
TripAdvisor will honour the ranked museums with its Travellers’ Choice awards. The list was determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for museums worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period. Also recently, Shillong was named as ‘India’s Favourite Hill Station’ in a survey by HolidayIQ. Surely the feathers in Shillong’s cap seems to be on the rise.
