How I reach Sulabh Museum of Toilets from Paharganj?

At Paharganj‘s main market near New Delhi Railway Station, I decided to tour the Sulabh Museum situated at Mahavir Enclave, Palam-Dabri Road. I walk a little, approx. 200 meters to reach Ramakrishna Mission Metro Station and a ticket to Janakpuri West Metro Station for Rs. 18 per person.  It is a 30-minute cool comfortable journey. Once at Janakpuri West, I hired an auto for the Sulabh Museum. The best is auto drivers know about the Sulabh Museum situated at Mahavir Enclave.

Rs. 70/- was the demand but upon bargaining Rs. 60/- I paid. It is a 15-minute journey depending on the traffic on the road. The auto driver was not using a meter for the fare. Anyway, the Museum is on the right side of the road. Estd. 1992 by Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak – Sociologist and Social Reformer and Founder of the Sulabh Sanitation Movement. Starting from the Indus Valley Civilization (4500 years old) till modern times toilets, all information is well displayed. Inside Sulabh Museum is a minimum 2 hours tour if you are serious about knowing toilets and its history.

I suggest that if you are in New Delhi, especially around the main market of Paharganj take a metro, later an auto to visit the Sulabh Museum of Toilets. I believe it is the single and the most interesting museum of toilets in India.
