Paintings at Nicholas Roerich Museum

The Nicholas Roerich museum, located at Naggar, Kulu district is a prominent travel destination of Himachal Pradesh.

The museum is in memory of Nicholas Roerich, a Russian citizen who settled in the state after the 1917 revolution. He was an excellent painter and had the dream of uniting the world through the one and only essence of art.

The museum, a whitewashed building set in the midst of an exquisite garden, hosts many paintings by Roerich. There are about a dozen of them, reflecting his love for mountains. The paintings, with a vague touch of mysticism, are ones with clear Russian influences.

Apart from the paintings, there are also the photos of Nicholas Roerich, in which he poses with some dignitaries like Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of India.
