One of the most notable of its kind in the state, the Armour and Chandeliers Museum houses many heritage riches, chief of which is elegant Bohemian cut-glass chandeliers. These were brought by Maharaja Mohinder Singh, the ruler of the erstwhile princely state of Patiala (1852-1876). Another attraction to look out for is a four-wheeled silver alloy chariot that belonged to Maharaja Bhupinder Singh (1900-1938). This gorgeous chariot was built in 1909, in Kolkata, and was drawn by six horses. It was mainly used on ceremonial occasions. The museum's armament section is just as amazing and holds a remarkable collection of arms including a seven-barrel bolt-action gun, a jade dagger that belonged to Guru Gobind Singh and a sword used by Nadir Shah, a powerful ruler of Iran (1736-1747). The museum can be visited between 10 am and 5 pm
