Open Air "Village Life" Amazing Museum: First of its kind in India

Very recently I visited a very rare and interesting type of museum in my visit to Kolhapur, India. There's a museum called 'Siddhagiri Gramjivan (Village life) Museum'. This unique project is the only of its kind in India and situated at Shri Kshetra Siddhagiri Math, Kaneri near Kolhapur. Many people know about Kaneri Math but very few know about this museum.

For those who even don't know about 'Kaneri Math'; here is something - It is holy place with Shiva mandir. It is believed that Shiva linga was installed by a Lingayat Priest on a beautiful hill in the 14th century. The temple is beautiful and peaceful with huge Nandi. About 500 years ago, a Lingayat Priest Kadsiddheshwar Maharaj developed and renovated it and hence the place is now known by his name. A 125 feet deep well and 42 feet huge Shiva idol is another worth watching. Check out some snaps of the Unique Museum.
