The Nehru Planetarium of New Delhi is located in the lush green grounds of the Teen Murti House. Built in the fond memory of Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru, the grounds on which the planetarium was established is one of great historical significance since it was the residence of the late prime minister himself. The planetarium is brimming with information related to space and cosmology which is displayed in the form of splendid sound and visuals, making one feel almost at one with stars. There are regular interactive sessions, art competitions and stellar space equipment on display, making this place a massive hub of tourists.
Officially known as the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, the museum was inaugurated in 1984 by former prime minister of India, Smt. Indira Gandhi. It was set up with the premise of promoting Science and Astronomy in India, of which Chacha Nehru himself was a staunch proponent. The establishment is well endowed with state-of-the-art telescopes, solar filters and projectors with which one can view almost 2 million stars and experience the vastness of outer space. Two standout attractions include the dome shaped Sky Theatre and the Soyuz T-10 capsule which carried India’s first cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma to space. The planetarium is thus inundated with almost 2 lakh visitors every year with the yearning to take a peek outside Earth.
