Sri Pratap Singh Museum information
Lonely Planet review
This richly endowed historical museum features Mughal papier-mâché work, 4th-century tiles, 8th-century gods, stuffed birds, mammoth bones, weaponry and traditional Kashmiri costumes, all within the touchingly unkempt 1872 Lalmandi Palace of Maharajah Pratap Singh. It’s accessed from central Srinagar by a footbridge across the Jhelum River then by shimmying through frightening coils of razor wire. Bring ID. A new exhibition hall is nearing completion.
