Largest Museum on Hanuman in the World

The largest Hanuman Museum in the world is located at Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, India, and is a storehouse of information on Hanuman. The museum is set up by Sunil Gomber, an ardent devotee of Hanuman.
Deccan Herald reports 
Just enter the museum and you will find a complete world of Hanuman artefacts, portraits, murals, statues, relics, books and cassettes. In fact, this museum has been certified by the Limca Book of Records as the largest Hanuman Museum in the world. This is solely due to the efforts of Sunil Gomber, a prominent publisher of Lucknow, who has donated, since 2004, portions of his mansion at Indira Nagar at Lucknow for the museum. 
The museum has more than 700 rare portraits, carefully collected by Gomber. The seven portfolios, prominently disp¬la¬yed on the walls, show Hanuman in different moods and varied emotions like “veer rasa” and “bhakti rasa.” 
One of the portfolios even shows Lord Rama dressing up Hanuman. The murals throw up different aspects of his life. For example, one aspect of God Hanuman’s prowess was that he was a celibate. One of the murals shows a curious episode not known to many.
