The Egmore Museum is home to a remarkable collection of stone sculptures. Carved over 2000 years ago, the Amaravati sculptures are the earliest examples of Buddhist art in the whole world. Lend an ear to their stories and you will experience History like never before. In an adjoining bay, 1500-year-old inscriptions hold clues to how languages evolved. Ancient Hindu and Jain sculptures next door, hint at the big Gods of the time. And 1000-year-old Hero and Sati stones tell tales of age-old customs and traditions. Explore all this and more on this tour of the stone sculpture galleries of the Egmore museum.
This trail starts at the entrance of the South Indian sculptures gallery of the Egmore Museum. On the first floor, the trail takes you through the Copper plates bay, the Epigraphy section, the Hindu sculptures gallery, the Amaravati gallery and the Jain sculptures gallery.
