Watch: Ancient Mummy saved in Jaipur from museum’s basement after heavy rain

An ancient Mummy, 2400-year-old, was rescued from the basement of Albert Hall Museum in Jaipur following heavy rainfall. The Mummy was kept in the basement of the museum in a glass chamber. Following heavy rains of August 14 in Jaipur, the museum staff rushed to the basement to rescue the Mummy. The staff reportedly broke the glass chamber and shifted the Mummy to a drier place. The staff saved the Mummy but the coffin, accompanying paraphernalia was affected by muddy water. Almost 17,000 antiquities were affected by rainwater. Museum authorities have installed huge fans and halogen lights for drying the documents. The Mummy has been on display in the Jaipur museum since 2016. The Mummy is of Tutu, a female member of a priest family dating from Egypt’s Ptolemaic period (322 BC-30 BC). It was imported by the ruler of Jaipur, Sawai Ishwar, from Cairo in 1887. Watch the video for more details.
