Mumbai gets Laser Show Garden To attract Tourism!!!
Posted by Deepak Shetty on August 3, 2009
Mumbai has always been a place of tourist attraction, it has a long list of sites to be visited. Historical sites, contemporary wonders, archaeological sites, religious sites and natural wonders. Recently the Bandra Worli Sea Link was Inaugurated and now to add more to its attraction for tourists the city has got a garden equipped with multimedia laser show and musical fountains.
The Bharat Van Garden, situated at Marol in the western suburb of Andheri, was inaugurated on 2 August by Union Minister of State for Information and Technology Communications Gurudas Kamat yesterday. The garden, developed by Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC), is spread across a hillock over about five acres of land and MTDC had sanctioned Rs 7.33 crore for procuring and installing equipment for musical fountains and multimedia laser show.
The Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) had carried out its beautification. After inauguration, Mr Kamat said, ” We have fulfilled our commitment and this garden is developed to promote tourism, it will be a special tourist attraction for all Mumbaikars and especially, the incoming domestic and foreign tourists in the city.”
This is a nice approach to add on to tourist attraction in mumbai, hope there are also measures taken to maintain the place after spending such a huge amount in making it .There are already objections coming up against it which I think should be solved as Mumbai is more famous for objections and protests along with development in the city.
