It's very happy to see the Planetarium at Bhubaneswar with my family and friends. They all learnt some event about sky. They all have planned for next visit. Food, water etc are available in that place. It's pleasure that it is in Orissa. Thanks for all who have built it.

"Feels like one is moving with the planets and stars"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Aug 14, 2014
It a place where children as well as others can get a bunch of knowledge about the space, planets and stars. It was constructed in such a way, that when the movie plays, people can actually feel it. A beautiful place to visit.
