    Bombay's main art gallery, just next to the Prince of Wales Museum, displays changing exhibits by well-known Indian artists. There's plenty of art to be seen outside as well, as the plaza in front of the building is full of artists offering their works for sale and their talents for commission assignments.

    Bicycle Ferris Wheel at Kala Ghoda Art Festival

    Jehangir Art Gallery is the biggest and most famous Indian art gallery. It was built in 1952 by Sir Cowasji Jehnagir.

    There are four exhibit halls with works by some very well-known artists. One hall has works that change frequently so there is always something new to see. Both times we have been there the artist has been available for discussion or questions, which is really nice.

    There is an antique shop inside the art gallery, along with its famous cafe, Samovar.

    The sidewalks outside the gallery are full of artists selling their art. Support a local artist and take home a nice souvenir!

    There are several art galleries in the area.

    Each year in February just outside the gallery is the Kala Ghoda Art Festival. The next one is Feb. 6-10, 2010. It's always alot of fun with some very interesting art.

    Entry is free

    Hours: Monday - Saturday 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.

    This commercial art gallery near the National Gallery of Modern Art host weekly shows by Indian artist. The works here on display are on sale. Admission is free and it is crowded with middle-class Mumbaikers. It is worth a visit if you like art of any form.

    Jehangir Art Gallery, Prince of Wales Museum

    These two galleries (the Prince of Wales Museum is pictured here) are right around the corner from each other in Fort. The PoW Museum has a massive collection of art from throughout India's history, including pieces from as far back as 300 BC to the Moghul period and beyond.

    The Jehangir gallery is a contemporary art space, with exhibitions that change frequently. The artwork is for sale, and you can find some excellent pieces here.

    Front Entrance

    Bombay's Premier Art Gallery, displaying India's Past and Contemporary Artistic Talents.
    It was built in the year 1952. Managed by the Bombay Art Society, the entire cost of this beautiful mansion was donated by Cowasji Jehangir.
    In 1911 with a donation of Rs. 400,000 given by Sir Cowasji Jehangir, George Wittet built the Jehangir Hall, originally a part of the Institute Of Science. In 1996, the hall was converted to a museum of modern art, with 20,000 square feet of exhibition area at a cost of Rs. 33,000,000. As a protected heritage structure, the external appearance of the building is not allowed to change; nor can structural alterations be made; in addition, changes are required to be reversible. Romi Khosla, the architect, erected new walls two feet inside the original, and laid a new marble flooring over the original black stone. The interior was completely restructured into four split-level galleries, a room for seminars and audio-visual presentations, and spaces for a bookshop and a cafe.
    Open: On all Days Timings: 1100 Hrs. to 1900 Hrs
