  • You can find original balti artefacts here. It's small for a museum but well kept. The building is a 140yrs old house and in itself worth seeing.

  • It is a beautifully preserved place with collection dated as old as 400 years. Got opportunity to visit this place and it is totally worth it. Must visit this place if u visit Turtuk
