About
FREE ENTRY TO ALL VISITORS --- Darshan is not really a 'museum' in the conventional sense of the term. Although it does what every museum does, keeps alive a memory, but at Darshan, it's done through 3D Holographics, Life-Like Statues, Realistic Sets, Hi-Def Audio, HD Video, Theatrical Lighting and much more!Darshan is the next step in story-telling. The visitor literally 'walks' into a scene and the scene 'plays out' before your eyes! Each scene is brought to life through realistic sets, and within the set are various props that help to recreate the scene before you. For the first time in the country has 3D Holographics been used in a show! Characters appear in thin air and act out scenes before your very eyes! A truly magical experience!Darshan tells the beautiful story of a Saint of Modern India, Sadhu T L Vaswani. He was a visionary, an educationist, a spiritual giant, a poet and much, much more! His life bore witness to the universal ideals of Unity, Brotherhood of all life, Compassion, Love for all, Peace. He inspired many to work for the cause of the independence of India alongside with Gandhi, he worked for women upliftment years before modern society did it, by starting a Women's Education Movement called the Mira Movement in Education. The Mira Movement in Education has now spread to many cities and thousands of young girls benefit from it. He was an animal rights activist, his birthday, 25th November, is celebrated as Animal Rights Day and crores of people pledge to abstain from food of violence on this day every year! He was a spiritual giant. He spread the Eternal Message of the Saints and Rishis amongst the common man and made the Divine accessible to everyone. Ever a believer in the Unity of All Life, He promoted no one religion but taught that all religions lead to but One Goal. The Paths are Many but the Goal is One! His spiritual poetry has been compiled into the largest compilation of Spiritual Poetry by a single author in the world! It is called the Nuri Granth and is revered by his followers as a storehouse of spiritual wisdom and knowledge.We invite you to come and experience His simplicity, His wisdom, His purity, His unique life at Darshan!

This is a must visit place for both spiritually and socially inclined people. The Dharshan is an one and half hour journey into the life and times of Sadhu Vaswani. Many real life incidents are beautifully recreated using modern technology to give an immersive experience for the audience. The end result is both a rich cultural feel and sound moral and spiritual engagement. There is a small shop selling the books written by Sadhu Vaswani and his disciples.

Had seen this while cycling in Pune and was curious about this place. Had made a mental note to visit this place sometime. Luckily One of my plans got cancelled on a saturday and took that time to visit here.

What a wonderful experience it was. When I went there, a new batch had just gone in and I was asked to wait for sometime. After 45 mins, I was asked to enter. I was told that a school had booked all the slots for 180 students and hence there was a wait.

Its really a shame that I did not know about Shri Sadhu Vaswani earlier. Such a great personality with simple yet effective teachings and beliefs. Really impressed by him and great to look upto such personalities for inspiration.

What is impressive about this place is the way in which we get to know about Shri Sadhu Vaswani. Its presented very differently than the way we have normally seen anywhere in India. You almost get immersed in it and feel you are part of it. The technicians who have worked on this have created something magical and this should be used as a template to let our generation and future generations learn about the great personalities we have had in our country.

I would highly recommend it to anyone. Maybe the kids below 10 years may find it difficult to be quiet,listen and watch it but above 10 is absolutely fine. Its a MUST for adults.

At last, I would like to thank the staff(right from the security to the people who admitted us to the ones who took us around inside). All the staff were super helpful and answered every single question with patience. Given that it was a busy day for them, I was pleasantly surprised that they had the energy and patience to make sure I had good experience.

We had never thought that our experience to this sacred place would be so great and fulfilling. This was once in a lifetime experience, but we wish to come there again and again, such was the impact it created on us. We had never experienced anything like this before coming to this place. The spiritual journey mixing the audio, video, multimedia, and 3D holographic screens with real-life mannequins create an atmosphere where you feel totally spellbound and a calmness starts to rise in you. We don't study much about Sadhu Vaswani in our academics, which is not a good thing. To everyone reading this, you must have to visit this place atleast once in your lives.
