When the IPMC was over, we had many days left for spiritual experiences in Ladnun, as we stayed there unto Maryada Mahotsav in February, one more month. We used the opportunity to become acquainted with the campus and the different institutions located there.

The museum was definitely worth a second gaze. It was completed in the late eighties of the last century. Acharya Tulsi had the vision of a museum gallery where all the beautiful gifts offered to the Acharyas for Maryada Mahotsav by the Sangh could be exposed together with spiritual paintings.

The building is a keen combination of material and form, marble and sandstone, in rectangular and rotund form. The tower-like gallery can be entered through the squarish part of the building. The red-painted sandstone bricks of the tower and the black-painted mortar make the building an eye-catcher together with the silvery grey striped marble.

In the entry, the visitor is welcomed by a wood craved Acharya Kalugani faced Arihant in deep meditation. The half-relief is surrounded by ornaments decorating the whole door frame.

followed by paintings with themes from the Jain Dharma,

incidents of Lord Mahavira’s life,

and photos of Acharya Tulsi and Acharya Mahaprajna.

Among the various objects in the showcases were handiworks, manuscripts,

and cosmological depictions, done by monks and nuns.

Anyhow, the museum is worth visiting, the choice here is just to inspire for an own discovery.
