The Cyrus Cylinder is in Mumbai

The Cyrus Cylinder

The Cyrus Cylinder and other ancient Persian artifacts are on display in Mumbai at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya. They are really quite dramatic examples of lives that were lived over 2000 years ago. If you are in the city, you should definitely go check them out at the exhibition organised in association with The British Museum.
