Must visit place. Very informative and unique place. You will come to know about the evolution of moon, galaxies. Extinction of dinosaurs from earth, history of the earth. Reason for climate changes and tides in the ocean with a biggest projector on the top of a dome. Children will certainly enjoys it.

A 30 min show costs 120 bucks per person (Dec 22). The shows are available in English, Hindi and Bengali. The content is excellent, the planetarium air-conditioned and the entire complex is well-maintained.

Birla Planetarium is the oldest and largest planetarium in Asia. It is popularly called Tara Mandal. There are regular one hour shows on wonders of the universe and on facts about the galaxies held here in three major languages Bengali, Hindi, English. The show is really amazing. Great experience. The Sky Theatre show was just amazing and a different experience all together. The explanation and projection was professional.

This was my second visit to this place and I again was made to watch the same show named "Cosmic Collisions", this time in English though. This Planetarium is undoubtedly the best one in India and gives a unique experience about the rich heritage of Kolkata. A must visit for everyone

The M. P. Birla Planetarium in Kolkata, West Bengal, India, is an iconic  structure whose architecture is based on the famous Buddhist Stupa at Sanchi. Situated near Victoria Memorial, it is a landmark in the city of Kolkata.

The location of this landmark is central of Kolkata with Victoria Memorial and St Pauls' Cathedral at walking distances. Shows are timed and also available in different languages like Bengali, Hindi, English and the 40 min show can be enjoyed along with family with children.

the landmark is well maintained and there is a fountain with lights during the evening, making it a good day out for families.

This place will be part of a landmark area of Kolkata so must visit.

The Birla Planetarium in Kolkata is the biggest planetarium in India. The planetarium is very well maintained. We had been to a show in English and enjoyed it very much.

I remember visiting this as a child with my father on numerous occasions. I was pleased to see that it was well maintained and that locals are enjoying it as much as I did. The shows are excellent. They used to be in English, I presume that they are now in Bengali. The gardens are beautifully maintained and provide photo opportunities for the young. The fountain in the centre when operating would be worth seeing. I note that it is clean.
