“check the timings and the language of the show”
Reviewed 11 January 2013

There is nothing to see here except the shows that they have at an interval of 2 hour.Check the language of the show before you buy tickets.Not an important part of the itinerary.

“Very Informative”
Reviewed 15 November 2012

This is one of the better planetariums in our country as compared to BITM, Kolkata or Birla Planetarium in Kolkata or Science City 3D shows. The shows are upto date & give a realistic feeling. It seems as if you are actually moving through the planets or the Pyramids of Egypt that too without a 3D glass. Conducted tours will note take you there. You have to arrange it separately. You can also visit Natural history Museum next door & Regional Science Park 500 Mtrs away. Its located at Acharya Vihar & can be approached via Jayadev Vihar or Vani Vihar.

“Could be abetter place”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

Well, the place is actually named after the famous astrologer Pathani Samanta. Its run by the Government of Odisha.
Very poorly maintained.
But you can have an average knowledge of the stars atleast.
Good place for kids.
But be prepared for bed bugs because the last time I had been I was bitten by one.
dont also forget the have a look at the prehistory park near it.
Its quite reachable via all means like auto-rickshaw and town buses.
Wishing you a good time.
