WAX MUSEUM OF LONAWALA ( MAHARASHTRA )
Apart from the beautiful water falls , lakes , Rain clouds , Hills , Flora and Fauna of western Ghats around Lonawala ( a peaceful hill station near Mumbai ), You also come across a grand Wax museum housing about 50 Wax Models of some celebrities or well known personalities. The wax museum is the brain child of Sunil Kandallor , a trained wax sculuptor from Kerala . Shri Kandallor has already opened his wax museums in Tamil Nadu and Kerala .
                                                                                 







                                                                          

We visited the wax museum in September 2014 and saw his Models . So perfect and elegant. Anna Hazare , Mohd Rafi , Rabindra Nath Tagore ,Sadaam Hussain , M S Subalakshmi , Gandhi Ji , Kapil Dev , Babasaheb Purandare ( Eminent Matrathi writer and Historian from Pune ), Sardar Bhagat Singh , satya Sri Sai Baba, B R Ambedkar, A R Rehman,Prabhu Deva , Narendra Modi, Atal Bihari vajpayee  and so many other personalities appear alive in Wax. Amby valley ( Developed by Sahara Group ) and Khandala are also close by .To reach Lonawala , you enjoy every minute of your drive on Mumbai -Pune super Highway .The highway takes you through the hills of western Ghats.Lonawala is also connected by Train .


So next time you plan a visit to Mumbai , visit this grand Wax Museum at Lonawala . Why keep worrying for a visit to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in UK?
