Timings: This... more museum remains open between 10:00 and 17:00 from Mondays to Saturdays. On Sundays, it remains open from 12:00 to 17:00.Brass Rubbing CenterIn brass rubbing’s old craft, artisans go on to transfer designs all the way from brass on to paper. This museum can boast of collections of around 300 templates; along with a wide spectrum of designs from Middle East and Europe. As such, those craving for varieties of designs would enjoy over here. They would not regret their visit to this monument.  Once seen, they won’t feel like returning. Timings This museum remains open from Mondays to Sundays between 10:00 and 19:00.
