Sanskruti Vihar literally means ‘a journey through India’s heritage.’ This 12 minute boat ride takes you through ancient Indian civilization’s villages and bazaars, then to Takshasilla, the world’s first university, and finally through a tunnel-like labyrinth of ancient discoveries by India’s rishis. It unravels ancient Indian history as it sails down the Sarasvati River, the mother of Indian civilization. Visitors are seated in a peacock shaped boat and taken through an exciting displays of dioramas and audio-animatronic displays. From this unique boat ride, visitors learn about India’s contributions to society. For example, the rishis of ancient India were first to discover the numeral zero, the mathematical concept of pi, the laws of gravity, plastic surgery, Ayurveda, flight, and much more. The concluding message illustrates the essence of Indian culture and its message of coexistence: “The world is one human family….” Sanskruti Vihar is a permanent display at the Swaminarayan Akshardham in New Delhi.
