One of the many gardens of Jaipur, Central Park would have been like any other green stretch of land, if not for its unique bamboo shoot nursery and the piece of art housed within the park. Conceived by the renowned French sculptor Christian Lapie, this circle of rocks at Central Park is entitled "In The Path Of The Sun And The Moon: Universal Being" and with all its lighting effects, is spectacular to look at. This one of a kind sculpture is a pleasant deviation from the regular ethnic tourist attractions of the city. One of the best known hang-outs of Jaipur, Central Park is an oasis in the middle of a desert land.
The Birla Institute of Scientific Research has earned a sparkling reputation for its immeasurable contribution towards technological progress in India. As an extension to spreading knowledge, the research institute in Jaipur also houses a planetarium that conducts as many as 6 astronomy shows on a daily basis. Most of these shows are in Hindi but if requested, English shows can be arranged as well. In comparison to the other Birla planetariums across the country, this one may not be as large but it certainly maintains the standard in terms of the state-of-the-art equipment it uses. If language isn't too much of a problem, one should definitely stop by for a look. Visit their website for show timings and schedules.
When one catches a glimpse of the striking edifice of the Birla Auditorium, it is hard to believe that it isn't a palace. Scenically set in middle of a garden, with a lively fountain in the center, this auditorium mirrors the customary decor of the renowned havelis of Jaipur. However from within, it is exactly opposite with its hi-tech equipment and state-of-the-art audio-visual facilities. A seating capacity of over a thousand and other conveniences such as an ample parking area, centralized air-conditioning and cafeteria within the confines, all add up to making this place a favorite with event organizers. Right from Rajasthani performing arts to business trade fairs, if it is a huge event, chances are it'd be hosted at the Birla Auditorium.
