Witness The Glory of Modern and Contemporary Art At Kalakriti Art Gallery

There is no doubt that the Salar Jung Museum is the ultimate crown jewel of Hyderabad’s art scene. But this doesn’t, in any capacity, take away from the myriad thriving galleries around the city, all with the agenda of promoting art and encouraging budding artists. One of those is the Kalakriti Art Gallery, the largest private art gallery in the city. Kalakriti Art Gallery Hyderabad takes pride in curating one of the largest collections of 19th-century oleographs, embellished and chromolithographs in the nation, as well as a great collection of traditional and indigenous art, including Saura, Gond, and Pichwais.
