Art Museum

Museum in Trichy (Tiruchirappalli)

On the right just south of Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple's fifth gopuram is the small but interesting Art Museum. On display you'll find good bronzes, tusks of bygone temple elephants, weaponry and a collection of superb 17th-century Nayak ivory figurines depicting gods, demons, kings and queens (some erotically engaged), and even a Portuguese soldier.
