India will soon get the much-awaited theme park dedicated to Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th Guru of the Sikhs. To celebrate his birth anniversary, a new theme park and museum- Prakash Punj, is being constructed in Patna by the government of Bihar. Read on to know more about it.
The Government Has Allotted Rs. 13.38 Crores For The Project
The museum and park will solely be dedicated to the life of Guru Gobind Singh, and the budget for the same is Rs. 13.38 crore. In 2017, the state tourism department had decided to dedicate the museum to Guru Gobin Singh’s 350th birth anniversary- however, the project that was going to be ready by 2020 was delayed due to the pandemic.
The Bihar government has allocated Rs. 13.38 crore to develop a multipurpose complex that will portray the belongings of Guru Gobind Singh and other Gurus. It is being built over 10-acre land at Patna Sahib with an estimated cost of Rs. 50 crores. Named as Prakash Punj, it will boast an auditorium, galleries, and two exhibition halls besides other facilities for visitors and tourists.
