The centre is also equipped with a 3D printed city model map, a live aquarium and 3 exhibition centres.
Alongside Dravyavati River, 3 different parks that spread over an area of 1,00,000 sq. m have been designed and developed.

With more than 18,000 trees planted and 65,000 square meters green area developed under this project, the Dravyavati River bank will soon become a lure to the people seeking solitude or refreshment in the city.Read Less
