The National Gallery of Modern Art is one of the most celebrated art galleries in Delhi and is located in Jaipur House. Founded in March 1954 by the Government of India, the National Gallery of Modern Art is home to more than 14,000 works of art by artists such as Raja Ravi Verma, Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, Abindranath Tagore, Gaganendranath Tagore, Jamini Roy, Amrita Sher-Gill and Nandalal Bose, among others. The gallery is even home to work which dates as far back as 1857.

The National Gallery of Modern Art is located at the edge of Rajpath and faces India Gate. The building in which the gallery is situated was the former residence of the Maharaja of Jaipur and hence is known as Jaipur House. In 2009 a new wing was added to the gallery adding six times more space to the existing structure. Apart from that, the gallery now has an auditorium, a conservation library, a preview theatre, an academic section, a café and a small shop from where you can buy souvenirs.
