Do you all know Where the First Wax Museum was established?
I had no idea about this until I visited Kanyakumari and got to know that India’s the First Wax Museum was established in Kanyakumari,interesting isn’t it,being just a small tourist and pilgrimage site in the southernmost tip of India..I was really amazed to know this and was really excited as I had never been to a Wax Museum.
Though this Museum is not as big as Madame Tussauds Museum in London but good enough for a first time visitor like me…
