Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, New Delhi – An Abode of Artifacts from History

It was the seventh day of my 9-day long journey at New Delhi. My experience in the heart of the country was so far quite exhilarating. I had visited the Jantar Mantar on the previous day and the architectural observatory’s image was still afresh in my mind. So on the seventh day I decided to pay a visit to the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library.

The Nehru Memorial Museum and Library was established in the year 1964 and attracts large number of tourists from all over the world each day. The library is located in New Delhi in a place called Teen Murti House and it aims at the preservation of the facts of the Indian Independence Movement. The museum is named after the First Prime Minister, Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru and it was after his death that this autonomous institution was built.

The organization is aimed at containing the confluence of academic, cultural and technical forms of the contemporary and modern India. There are several papers and writings of great men from the history. For example, I saw the writing of Mahatma Gandhi and other eminent freedom fighters like Sarojini Naidu, B.C. Roy, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur, Charan Singh, etc.

There is a very rich history behind the formation of the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library. The library cum museum was previously known as the Teen Murti Bhawan, which derived its name from the Leonard Jennings of Britain. The idea behind this name were the three Indian princely states, Hyderabad, Jodhpur and Mysore, which were considered to have served the Israel and Gaza Strip after the World War I.

I was truly amazed as I went on discovering the rich history of my country. I am more of a reader quality and my auditing work makes me to research for different papers on mathematics and science. There is a very good library in the museum that has books about different eras of the history. I went through different books and my time was consumed in a quite fruitful manner. I had a splendid day out at the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library.
