The foundation stone of Jaipur’s mesmerizing Albert Hall was laid in the year 1876 during the visit of Prince of Wales, Albert Edward to Jaipur. But, even at that point in time, it was uncertain as to its use. After a plenty of suggestions about putting it for cultural and educational use, in the year 1880, Maharaja Sawai Madho Singh II approved a suggestion by Dr. Thomas Holbein Hendley, to open a museum of Industrial Arts to display products of local craftsmen. A little within a year in 1881, a small museum was created in a temporary accommodation, which even proved to be most popular.

The artifacts for the temporary museum were collected from different parts of India and eventually,its neighborhood were merged and moved to their permanent abode in the new museum.

Now, apart from the artifacts, the building itself became an integral part of the display, particularly because of its Indo-Saracenic architecture and stone ornamentation. Gradually, it also became a source of reference for Mughal to Rajput. The corridors of the museum literally speak as they are adorned with murals in a range of styles including the Ramayana. The portrayal of murals from European, Egyptian, Chinese, Greek and Babylonian civilizations were especially used to enable the people of the region to develop their knowledge of history and art.

Thus, Albert Hall not only stands as a spectacular architectural manifestations but it is also a source of historical knowledge of the civilizations, rousing artisans to hone their skills as well as developing and preserving traditional Indian arts, crafts, architectural forms.
