  • Ok place to visit on way to border ceremony. Several galleries of historical information on region - most with dioramas. Also has a fair amount of military history for those interested in this subject. Has a weird ‘9-D’ theatre session for 15 minutes which summarizes some of India’s military heroes - though is in Hindi language only. It then ends with a 3-d type roller coaster ride whilst you sit in the theatre- not sure how that ties in with the military history summary! Overall I found this place worthwhile to visit but would not go there only to see this - our make it part of a trip such as the border crossing ceremony
