The nation’s leading art gallery was established in 1954 in a converted palace belonging to the Maharaja of Jaipur. Today, it houses more than 14,000 works by the entire pantheon of Indian painters dating from the mid-19th century. Don’t miss the garden at the back of the gallery—a serene, sculpture filled space—and stop by the museum shop for a souvenir reprint.
