This day we was here at the wrong time as the Museum are closing for the Lunch time, and we have to wait for an hour till the Museum reopen.

Many of the place in the Museum are not allow to take pictures... so we have not many chances to showcase the Museum.

The Buddha Head is another interesting Item displaying in the Museum... both of these item are made by tough metal...
