Manikyavelu Mansion

This heritage building currently houses the National Gallery of Modern Art. Dating back to 1915, the property belonged to Kanteerava Narasimharaja Wadiyar, prince of Mysore. In 1939, it was sold to the mining baron, Raja Manickyavelu Mudaliar, and hence it came to be known as the Manikyavelu Mansion.
