    Gallery No. 5

Gallery No. 5 exhibits Hindu deities like Shiva in different forms, Vishnu, Ganesha, Kartikeya, Agni, Parvati, Navagrahs (nine planets) with Ganesha, Lakshmi and Saraswati. A panel depicting Navagrahas with Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesa is also remarkable. Shiva as Bhairava (aggressive form of the Lord) is one of the finest Brahmanical images found at Sarnath. A colossal Andhakasurvadha (killing of demon Andhaka) image of Shiva in his terrific form is also noteworthy.
