Q.

When was birla planitorium in Kolkata built - in fact that was the place where I went more out of curiosity to know about the unknown world of planets & stars and wished that all the cities in India must have such planitoriums to inculcate the interests of outer world among the people & encourage the children to go to these places to enrich their knowledge.

The M. P. Birla Planetarium in Kolkata is the largest planetarium in India. The planetarium started functioning from September 29, 1962 as an educational, scientific and research institution and was formally inaugurated on July 2, 1963 by the first Prime Minister of India Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. M. P. Birla Planetarium is established on an acre of land leased by the West Bengal Government.
