Last year, I got a chance to see ti. Sarnath is a well – known place in Indian history. In the past, there were many Buddhist monasteries here.

The museum is divided into many sections. I passed gate of the museum. Soon I found myself in the Art Section. It was well decorated. There I saw many big and old statues of Buddha and Buddhist saints. These statues were thousands of years old I saw the history of India written on stone. I also saw some pillars. On them were recorded the edicts of Ashoka. These things made me think of the past. In this section I also saw beautiful paintings and clay models. They threw much light on  the people’s lives in the past.

Then I moved on to another section. There is saw many old relics. I saw dresses worn by the Rajput soldiers in the past. I was very much surprised to see the weapons used by Indian warriors. Among these weapons were old swords, shields , lances and armour. They were very nicely arranged. A picture   of the Rajput glory and chivalry seemed to float before my eyes when I had a look at shields , daggers, swords, weapons, ornaments, and armours that were own by the Rajput warrior sand women.

The golden age of the Guptas seemed to return when I stepped into hall where statues images and engravings to the Gupta period were artistically put up. I could catch a beautiful glimpse of our ancient heritage and civilization from the various articles that had been dug out of the mounds at Harappa and Mohen- jo – daro. There was a beautifully embroidered coat of cotton cloth which showed that our ancestors, about 6000 years ago, knew the art of making cloth.  

Then I went to the History section. On one table I saw some great books of the past. They were written on bhojpatra. On another table I saw many things belonging to the times of Buddha. They reminded me of Buddha and his teachings.

At last I went to the Cottage Industries Section. In one corner, I saw old things of clay. They were beautiful and useful. They were more attractive than the things of clay of today. In this section, I also saw the work of the blacksmith, the weaver and the carpenter. All this work proved the great skill of the artisans of the past.
