Virasat-e-Khalsa becomes most visited museum in Asian sub-continent
Virasat-e-Khalsa, the pioneer museum depicting 550 years’ history and culture of Punjab and Sikhism, has scripted new chapter in its rising glory by becoming the most visited museum in the Asian sub-continent on a single day. The museum had witnessed a record footfall of 20,569 visitors on a single day on March 20. Hence, the “Asia Book of Records” had confirmed the record of “maximum footfall in a museum in a day” in the name of Virasat-e-Khalsa, which would feature in the next edition of the Asia Book of Records. Earlier, the museum was listed in the “Limca Book of Records-February 2019 Edition” and “India Book of Records-2020 Edition”. The museum was built by Punjab Government and was inaugurated in November 2011. The iconic museum stands out in terms of popularity, visitor footfall, architecture, grandeur and aesthetics; as also in its use of technology, infrastructure and world class standards of maintenance and upkeep.
