Yesterday, I posted the story of our visit to the Kangra Temple (Brajeshwari Temple), a historical temple in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. The story continues as follows:
Kangra MuseumWe reached Kangra museum at around 10:00 AM, and were offered two cups of tea, one for Deepak and another to me.
Although, the price was higher (INR 30) than I had paid ever that much for single cup of tea, but it was a place(attendant told us), where the rates were decided by the royal people themselves. Being students we managed a little barganing, 20 rupee a cup.

They also offered us one very helpful thing, though it was optional but it became our guide as we entered the gate. This was an audio device, which contained a remote device, having buttons numbered from 1 to 15, each number when pressed would offer us the information related to the different parts of this historical place.
