Sardar Patel Planetarium Overview
The Sardar Patel Planetarium is one of the most popular attractions housed inside Vadodara’s Sayaji Baug.

Narrating stories of outer space, the Planetarium offers shows in three languages- Gujarati, Hindi and English. With life-like projections cast on a sizeable dome-shaped structure, the Planetarium is one of the most exciting places to see in Vadodara.
