March 2020 · 2 min read · Tehsil Taxila

In my last post about Gandhara Art Museum in Taxila having the artifact collection of Gandhara art dating from the 1st to 7th century. In that post I showed the history of that area and also showed mud pottery and some other religious stupa etc. In Taxila Museum there is a Jewelry Room in which you find this statue of dancing girl (Nartaki) wearing all gold Jewelry. There are many stories about this dancing girl that she was killed and after her death, people made her stupa in which they put her remains.

In this Jewelry Room different coins people used for trade in past era are also displayed. These coins have different engravings of pics and text on them. These coin are made with different metals and also have different history.

In this museum there is a section in which different beads are displayed which were mainly used as ornaments. These beads were carved beautifully in different birds and animals shapes. These beads were made with precious stones. These ornaments belong to 2nd century B.C. to 1st century A.D.

You can see a different stone bot very well circle carved used for weight measurement.

In this museum you can see Buddha's different statues of different eras.These statues depict Buddha performing different tasks like protecting people, preaching, fighting with evil etc.

In this museum different religious affairs like how people gave respect and offering to Buddhas are displayed through some relics. In one relic they showed monkeys giving offering to Buddha. In another relic they showed how gods tried to kill Buddha.
