Victoria memorial was constructed in the memory of Queen Victoria during British India .The place lies near the maidan area and is accessible by road, tramways and metro(maidan station being the nearest). Photography is strictly prohibited inside the memorial but you can take photos from outside. This place is kind of a museum. Most of the times there is some... More

The building exterior is impressive but the inside disappoints! Dull art work, not good lighting, loud attendants and to top it.. pigeons flying around. Isnt the art meant to be respected and taken care? A walk in the garden is good, but what is with the round stones along the path way? so uncomfortable for walking!!

This splendid building is the perfect setting to learn a great deal about the history of this great country, and particularly the British influence on it. But there is a lot to absorb, so do allow plenty of time to walk through the historical exhibits. Trying to rush it will definitely be a mistake.

The grounds to get in is 10 rupees and if you've been in India any length of time you'll see the usual; rubbish everywhere, hundreds of people shoving you this way and that and vendors selling all sorts of crap! To get in the museum for Indians is 20 rupees and for foreigners it 200 that's 10 times what a... More

It has a monument building, nicely maintained with its green garden and the artificial lake. Inside the building it has the collection of old British guns, swords, old paintings and finely collected... More
