About Raja Dinkar Kelkar

The Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum is in Pune, Maharashtra, India. It contains the collection of Dr Dinkar G. Kelkar (1896–1990), dedicated to the memory of his only son, Raja, who died early.

The collection was started around 1920 and by 1960 it contained around 15,000 objects. In 1962, Dr Kelkar handed his collection to the Department of Archaeology within the Government of Maharashtra.

This museum houses the collection of the late Dinkar Kelkar, a dedicated art lover. The museum concentrates on the arts of everyday life: pots, lamps, nutcrackers, pen and ink stands, containers and other such functional objects, each perfectly crafted and decorated. The wood carvings include carved wooden doors and windows from Rajasthan, Gujarat, Karnataka and Kerala. The metal objects include locks, ink pots, ritual bowls and nutcrackers.
