Archaeological Museum, Vijayapura

Archaeological Museum, Vijayapura



Bijapur, earlier known as Vijayapuri (city of victory), was the capital of the Adilshahis who ruled from 1489 AD to 1686 AD. The museum located in the Naqquar Khana (Trumpet House) of the Gol Gumbaz Complex, was originally established as a district museum in 1892. The museum collection includes stone inscriptions of Arabic, Persian, Kannada and Sanskrit languages in different scripts and written in varied calligraphy, Brahmanical and Jaina sculptures, hero stones, illustrated and plain manuscripts, coins, China wares, wooden carving, carpets, maps, sanads and firmans, miniature paintings, Bidiri ware and other household articles. The museum has six galleries and houses a majority of movable cultural properties with a special collection of Adilshahi art objects.
The best time to visit the museum is from the start of October to the end of March as the weather at this time of year pleasantly cool. Vijaypur also exhibits Shri Shiddeshwar Temple fair and Bijaur Music Festival in the month of January which is an experience of its own.
The museum can be visited on all days of the week, except on Fridays. The museum can be explored from 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
