The Jaipur Wax museum is the first wax museum in the world to be opened at a heritage site. This wax museum in Jaipur, in a short period of time, has gained recognition as the first museum in the city that’s on par with international standards. The wax museum in Jaipur is also known as Nahargarh wax Museum as it is located inside the Nahargarh Fort premises. This wax museum in Jaipur has over 30 life-like wax statues of famous personalities. Many of these icons have been trailblazers in their respective fields, and have been crafted by India’s maiden and senior most wax sculptor, Mr. Susanta Ray. To provide a unique experience to the visitors, the wax statues are complimented by ingenious sets and backdrops. The Jaipur wax museum also has on display the Gati Gamini, which is a 10-foot long Royal Enfield Bullet, the signature Rajasthan Tourism Motorbike.
The Nahargarh wax museum “Royal Darbar” section introduces the visitors to a sense of royalty. The exhibits of this section depict the majestic life like statues of “The Maharajas and The Maharanis of Jaipur”. Another stunning exhibit is “The Journey of the Jaipur Gemstone”, which puts on display the evolution of valuable heirlooms and treasures through the centuries. The Royal Darbar has been further divided into 2 galleries which have hand-painted pure gold motifs that are inspired from the glorious history of the Rajputana.
