Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum showcases the history of Ranjit Singh who was considered as the Lion of Punjab as he was the only ruler who didn't surrender under the ruling of East India Company. Instead, Ranjit Singh stood against the British soldiers when they tried to invade his region. Ranjit Singh is known as establishing a vast kingdom as he occupied the whole of Punjab and few regions in China and Khyber Pass. Therefore he was considered as the most fearful ruler in India during his reign.
Ranjit Singh was known for occupying both Lahore and Amritsar; he made Lahore as the capital for his kingdom and Amritsar as the spiritual capital due to multiple temples and Gurudwara being situated in the city. Since he played a major role in Indian history, a museum was built in the honour of Ranjit Singh. The Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum consists of the treasure collected by the Maharaja Ranjit Singh which includes rare artefacts and paintings. Rare coins are also being displayed in this museum where tourists get to view the history of the coins used from previous ages to date. Artefacts and paintings of the 18th and 19th century AD are displayed in this museum. Therefore, people and tourists who want to learn Indian history during the freedom movement and want to learn about the Sikh culture during the 18th - 19th century add Maharaja Ranjit Singh Museum to their itinerary list. This museum is located in Amritsar, in Punjab (a state in India), near the Golden Temple.
