The incomparable "Treasury of the National Jewels", which is open to public, is a collection of precious stone-encrusted throne, jewels from all over the world, a gem-studded 1869 globe,  the world’s largest pink diamond and other mind-boggling pieces make up the unusual collection at this historic museum, collected over centuries.
Every piece of this collection is a reflection of the tumultuous history of this great nation, and artistry of the residents of this land. Each piece recalls memories of bitter-sweet victories and  defeats, of the pride and arrogance of rulers who were powerful or weak.
