At Paharganj main market nearby New Delhi Railway Station I decided to tour 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. Â It is 30 minute cool comfortable journey. Once at Janakpuri West I hire an auto for Sulabh Musuem. The best is auto drivers know about Sulabh Museum situated at Mahavir Enclave.
Rs. 70/- was the demand but upon bargain Rs. 60/- I paid. It is 15 minute journey depending upon traffic on road. Auto driver was not using meter for fare. Anyway, 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.Â Starting from Indus Valley Civilization (4500 years old) till modern times toilets all information is well displayed. Inside Sulabh Museum is minimum 2 hours tour if you are serious about knowing toilets and its history.
I suggest if you are in New Delhi specially around main market Paharganj take a metro, later an auto to visit Sulabh Museum of Toilets. I believe it is a single and the most interesting museum of toilets in India. Guides are available – no charges.
