It is one business man's crazy art collection, no doubt that he has spent his hard earned money to own it. He suppose to be a tourist himself, his passionate love for collecting the precious artifacts is worth remembering. We must appreciate the pain his successors took to honor him and made his valuable collections display to the public. It is Alappuzha's prestigious memorial.
Good place to view multi collections. Lot of collectible items. If you are interested in seeing ivory, silver, Swarovski and jades then good place to visit.
