What Is It?

More of a housing collection of Animal and Human brains, The National Institute of Mental Health And Neurosciences Brain Hospital is one creepy place over seen by Dr Shankar. Festering with ‘pickled’ Brain jars, it is a true Zombieland haven!

You will find Rat and Duck brains here, afflicted brains such as damaged brains in an accident as well as a brain with an aneurysm and a tiny brain of a four-week-old baby. Chilling isn’t it!?

What’s More?

Although guided tours are not available, you will find some laminated pages entailing details as to diseased brains and even explaining certain smells they expel!

And if you are in luck, you might run into Dr Shankar himself who would willingly serve as a guide.

Do you have a weird brain fetish? Head here and immerse yourself in bheja then, for free on all days except Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.! Just don’t eat anything!
