Dwarka Oceanarium

A 100 crore mega project  will get a kickoff by end of the year, Oceanarium- first in India will start its development in Dwarka.

This oceanarium will have a unique marine park and a glass tunnel for exotic marine life. Initial visitor estimate is approx at 5Lakh out of 15L who visits Dwarka.

Looks like the project design has its maths correct, idea is that famous Dwarkadhish or Jagannath temple is one of the four major pilgrim centers of Hindu, and this temple remains closed from noon to 5 pm. visitors will surely spend their time gainfully at the air conditioned oceanarium.

This project will soon be a reality as its a PPP project and will unlikely to have delays
