Antique Shop Ooty

This is a continuation of the Ooty trip.While returning from Doddabetta (previous post) we chanced upon an antique shop at an elevation from the road level. There were several signboards announcing the shop: "Rose'N'Teak Furniture" "Antiques"  "Durries"  "Lithograph"  "Garden Furniture" etc. We parked our car on the road side and walked up the winding path leading to this antique palace. Unfortunately the main building was closed for lunch and we could only see what was displayed outside. But this was fascinating enough - a veritable feast for the eyes. I could not restrain myself from from taking a series of pics which are posted below. Wonder what treasures would be hidden inside the building. I suppose I would have to wait till my next visit. As we were about to enter we saw a rhesus monkey staring at us. He made an excellent subject to be photographed. I suppose the owners name is Z.A.Master & the name of the house "Dilkush as per the faded name plate  near the entrance gate. This is a must see place for any visitor to Ooty.
