India’s First Wax Museum in Kanyakumari

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…

And some of the Personalities wax statue I saw there..The administration is trying best to get many more Wax Statues of different Personalities and I wish them all luck,Maybe next time when I am there I can see more of them.

Now Please allow me to showcase them.. :-)

    • Lol Even you are also calling me Sir..I guess everyone is upto pulling my Legs.. ;)
      And Yes Rajni Sir Rocks and Our PM babu is surely a Puppet..
      Thanks Athena.. :-)

  2. Wax museums can be so cool,albeit a bit creepy sometimes, Harsha. But, I really enjoyed this! I always get a kick out of seeing American figures from another country’s artistic viewpoint! :)

    • Hehehe…Indeed I enjoyed a lot visiting the Wax Museum.. :-)
      And Wax Statutes from other artist viewpoint’s I guess makes it more interesting..
      Thanks for Dropping By Mike.. :-)

  3. LOL, they have a wax statue of the PM??? The quote is too long for him :P
    There’s a wax museum in Mysore as well. It has wax models of all musical instruments. Nice place to visit.
