While you’re in the area, pop into this tiny and thoughtfully presented museum , run by the Reserve Bank of India. It’s an engrossing historical tour of India through coinage: from early concepts of cash to the first coins of 600 BC, through Indo-European influences, right up to today’s Gandhi-covered notes. Also on display is the world’s smallest coin, probably found in the crack of an ancient couch.
