Among them is the Prince of Wales Museum, named after Prince George (Later George V) who visited India in 1905 and laid the foundation stone of the building. Through the arch the Prince made his royal entrance to India as King George V for the Delhi Darbar in 1911. This four-tiered goliath houses a priceless collection of over 2000 miniature paintings from various stylistic schools in India. Among other artifacts feature a sizeable number of relics of the Indus Valley Civilisation and instances of Tibetan and Nepalese art.
