It was a WOW experience when we saw Saturn, Jupiter with four moons and last but not the least Moon through the telescope.
If you are keen to know about solar system you must visit this place. 100 rs person is super worthy and your trip is incomplete without visit to this place.

Cherish this if you love spotting planets. Staff is quite humble and will try to explain in as detail as possible and will answer all your questions.

Well they charge INR 100 per person to show Moon, Jupiter and its four moons and Venus. If you wish to see other things such as Saturn with its ring, Himalayan peak views you need to pay separately. Basically the timings of their shows are in accordance with the rising time and visibility of stars, planets and the mountains. Overall it is a good experience. However they need to maintain certain discipline during the show as overcrowding on their tiny stage is problematic.

I strongly recommend all with young children to visit this place to enable their kids to watch the real celestial objects Sun moon planets and galaxies from a close range by a very powerful telescope the Stargate Observatory has.
