Would you like to feast your eyes at Art Galleries this week-end?

Every visitor in Mumbai, who is interested in art will know about Jahangir Art Gallery. Technically in the same compound as the Prince of Wales Museum, though approached from further up MG Rd is Jehangir Art Gallery. It is Mumbai’s best-known venue for contemporary art and is frequently used for art and photographic exhibitions. Here, the visitor can get an idea of modern Indian painting and sculpture.

The Gallery is open for five days: Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm and has visitors all day long.

But there are many more art galleries scattered around the city which are equally good and a feast of our eyes.
