The Manjusha collection not only gladdens the hearts of the visitors, but also educates them to a great extent.The sight of objects like domestic vessels, ritual objects, toys and games and even manuscripts which are very familiar to them arouse a new awareness amongst the visitors from neighboring places.They get motivated and make up their minds either to donate the antique objects in their possession to Manjusha Museum or to preserve them with care. The entire collection until now has remained carefully protected and is accessible to the pilgrims and scholars alike.Manjusha Museum at Dharmasthala is a veritable treasure house of lovingly preserved pieces of history. It may be mentioned here with humility and sincerity that the cardinal purpose of bringing together the Indian heritage objects in the collection of Manjusha Museum is to provide divine experience and aesthetic delight to the viewers.
