Nice Planetarium

This is not temple but a Planetarium inaugurated by that time Prime Minister Kahaleel Nehru. The stars are called Tara in Gujarati language. When you enter inside the place, lights will be off when some people will gathered and projector will start and explains us about stars, moon, sun and other heavenly bodies. An Interesting experience.
