Tourist spots of the Inspirational Destination Village will be open to visitors from 5 to 6 in the morning.

“A School 135 Years Old”

This school was established in the year 1888, and it was here that Narendra Modi received his early education. This school, which used to cater to eight small classes, has now been rebuilt in Navsari. Its appearance has been preserved similar to the old school. Wooden desks have been made at the Table-Khurshi place. This school, created at a cost of 40 crores, has now become a place of inspiration. Portraits of Bose, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Swami Vivekananda, etc., have been placed on the school’s walls.

“Knowledge Corner Hostel”

“Knowledge Corner” is the name of the hostel that is under construction. 50% to 60% of the work has been completed. Around 1500 children from all over the country will learn the glorious history here. Children will receive both digital and physical education.

“Sharmishtha Lake”

Sharmishtha Lake is being developed along the riverfront in Ahmedabad. The lake is surrounded by a 3.5-kilometer walkway, and a hill has been constructed in the middle. In addition, the larger lakes around Vadnagar have been merged to give the lake a new shape. In Vadnagar, there used to be 360 lakes at one time.

“Dhyana Kendra – Theme Park”

Located on the banks of the lake, there is a theme park based on knowledge, meditation, and classical music. An exclusive school for yoga has been established here. Meditation and yoga can be practiced on the lake’s shore. The station will be directly connected to the lake. On the lake’s other side, there is a watchtower, and an art gallery has been created here.

“Experience Museum”

The construction of Asia’s second-largest live experience museum is 55% complete and will be ready by January 24. This 21-meter-high museum is spread over 13,525 square meters on 326 pillars. It can accommodate 400 people simultaneously. The museum is based on themes, which means you can experience 2700 years of history during the evening light show. It will also have interactive exhibits. Vadnagar’s ancient 360 stepwells, 360 temples, and more than 1000 banyan trees can also be experienced here. The remains of excavation, idols, Buddhist stupas, artistic bangles, silver-copper-bronze coins, clay figurines, and more have been preserved here.
