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.

I would recommend you hike to this place. It's a wonderful road, with trees on both sides and very quiet too. It's an army run place and the discipline and decorum are maintained. There are many artefacts inside such as the Bangladesh agreement and guns and rifles of many a kind. Go before 5 because it closes early.
