Salar Jung Museum is a historic art gallery of all the arts, craftsmanship, jewels, earthenware, floor coverings, materials, compositions, furniture from different parts of the world and all the gatherings were sourced from the property of Salar Jung’s family, situated in the Darushifa on the southern banks of Musi River in the city of Hyderabad.
It is the 3rd biggest National Museum in India and it is the lifetime glory of the Nawab Mir Yousuf Ali Khan Bahadur Salar Jung-III, the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad, spent a liberal part of his salary for more than 35 years to build this monumental gathering. The collections that were abandoned in his royal residence, Dewan Devdi were later displayed in a private exhibition initiated by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1951.
There was a saying that the present gatherings are just 50% of the first craftsmanship during his time and most of the art pieces, jewels were lost and stolen during the movement of exhibition hall from Derwan Devdi to the present site in 1968 which is regulated now by the Government under the Salar Jung Museum Act, 1961.
