Small but great museum - provides a brief historical perspective on the evolution of the Indian army and its philosophy. Impeccable grounds maintained by the military and a golf course nearby. Also has a cactus greenhouse and flags collection of the various army units.

It is as beautiful as heaven be. I don't really know what words I should use here. Cute cafe and tree-top seating, variety of gorgeous cactus.... Amazing fields and imitations of real helicopter and tanks.
