The Salarjung Museum is the third largest museum in India housing the biggest one-man collections of antiques in the

world. It is well known throughout India for its prized collections belonging to different civilizations dating back to the 1st

century. Nawab Mir Yusuf Ali Khan Salar Jung III (1889–1949), former Prime Minister of the seventh Nizam of Hyderabad,

spent a substantial amount of his income over thirty five years to make this priceless collection, his life's passion. The

collections left behind in his ancestral palace, 'Diwan Deodi' were formerly exhibited there as a private museum which

was inaugurated by Jawaharlal Nehru in 1951. Old timers believe that the present collection constitutes only half of the

original art wealth collected by Salar Jung III. His employees siphoned off part of it, since Salar Jung was a bachelor and

depended upon his staff to keep a vigil. Some more art pieces were lost or stolen during the shifting of the museum

from Dewan Devdi to the present site. Later in 1968, the museum shifted to its present location at Afzalgunj and is

administered by a Board of Trustees with the Governor of Andhra Pradesh as ex officio chairperson under the Salar

Jung Museum Act of 1961.
