Amrapali Museum preserves the cultural heritage and time-honoured traditions of the nation through its awe-inspiring collection of rural, tribal and folk jewellery, ornaments, and objects.
- The museum is dedicated to Indian jewellery and jewelled objects collected from all over the country.
- The museum is spread over two floors; the ground floor displays items of beauty and adornment, silver and gold jewellery, whereas the basement houses numerous inspirations for designs that have been available to the Indian craftsmen. There is also a section dedicated to heirloom textiles that are embellished with gold and silver.
- The entire collection has over 4,000 artefacts, of which around 800 are on display. The rest of the collection is also open for viewing in the Visual Storage.
- The stunning pieces from the museum include a gem-studded back scratcher that conceals two sharp daggers, a chariot entirely covered in silver, a cascade of gold that adorned a woman's braid, gold-plated shoes studded with precious stones, and many more.
This museum is dedicated to the vast and varied collection of traditional jewellery and jewelled objects acquired by the founders of Amrapali Jewels, Mr Rajiv Arora and Mr Rajesh Ajmera. For the founders, the collection has been a labour of love that began nearly forty years ago when they became friends at college, and that continues to this day.
They believe the museum is just the beginning of how they hope to share the extraordinary living culture of India as seen across its regions, rituals and religions. The treasures that they have collected over innumerable journeys punctuate the narrative of this museum and are an enduring legacy of their fascination with India.
The founders are keen to share their entire collection with the world, with the belief that the unknown creators of each piece would have wanted their work to be seen and admired, as these creations are ageless, timeless and priceless.
