Disney world inspired Krishna Lila theme park in Bangalore
In a bid to enlighten people about the Vedic history of India, Iskcon is setting up a Krishna Lila theme park in Bangalore. The proposed park has been conceptualized on the lines of Disney World.
The thrill and fame of Disney World will soon come to Bangalore. The much-talked about Krishna Lila theme park, to be built by Iskcon under its India Heritage Foundation is all set to take off. The Bhoomi Puja is being held on June 20.
The proposed park to be constructed just off Kanakapura Road on 28 acre has been conceptualized on the lines of Disney World. The Rs 350-crore project is likely to have a heritage tower and after the two phases are complete, a total of nine attractions. The park will also have two temples, a 4-D theatre, expos, puppetry workshops, story-telling for children and costume shows.
“The purpose of Krishna Lila Park is to present, preserve and promote the cultural heritage of India as described in the ancient Indian classics, to the contemporary society, in an interesting and captivating presentation,” Said Iskcon authorities.
We want to impress upon the younger generation the glorious pastimes of our vedic heroes like Krishna, Rama and Hanuman. Today, our children’s minds are obsessed with Superman, Spiderman and such other characters and legends coming from the West. We want to introduce the great characters of our Indian epics and instill in the minds of our children the deep values they represent. This is an unprecedented and historical project being attempted for the first time in our country,” Said the officials.
The park will have separate zones for water slides, kids, expos, pavilions and religious space with temples and cultural activities. The special purpose vehicle established for the project will develop an adjoining residential area acquired to fund the park.
The narrative strategy known as technology assisted multi-sensory immersive and experiential story telling is used by the world’s best Theme Parks like Disney World, EPCOT and Universal Studios.
This will become yet another important tourism destination in Bangalore city. In that sense, this is a tourism project of immense significance has all the characteristics and societal benefits as any other tourism project.
