FREE ENTRY TO ALL VISITORS --- Darshan is not really a 'museum' in the conventional sense of the term. Although it does what every museum does, keeps alive a memory, but at Darshan, it's done through 3D Holographics, Life-Like Statues, Realistic Sets, Hi-Def Audio, HD Video, Theatrical Lighting and much more!Darshan is the next step in story-telling. The visitor literally 'walks' into a scene and the scene 'plays out' before your eyes! Each scene is brought to life through realistic sets, and within the set are various props that help to recreate the scene before you. For the first time in the country has 3D Holographics been used in a show! Characters appear in thin air and act out scenes before your very eyes! A truly magical experience!Darshan tells the beautiful story of a Saint of Modern India, Sadhu T L Vaswani. He was a visionary, an educationist, a spiritual giant, a poet and much, much more! His life bore witness to the universal ideals of Unity, Brotherhood of all life, Compassion, Love for all, Peace. He inspired many to work for the cause of the independence of India alongside with Gandhi, he worked for women upliftment years before modern society did it, by starting a Women's Education Movement called the Mira Movement in Education. The Mira Movement in Education has now spread to many cities and thousands of young girls benefit from it. He was an animal rights activist, his birthday, 25th November, is celebrated as Animal Rights Day and crores of people pledge to abstain from food of violence on this day every year! He was a spiritual giant. He spread the Eternal Message of the Saints and Rishis amongst the common man and made the Divine accessible to everyone. Ever a believer in the Unity of All Life, He promoted no one religion but taught that all religions lead to but One Goal. The Paths are Many but the Goal is One! His spiritual poetry has been compiled into the largest compilation of Spiritual Poetry by a single author in the world! It is called the Nuri Granth and is revered by his followers as a storehouse of spiritual wisdom and knowledge.We invite you to come and experience His simplicity, His wisdom, His purity, His unique life at Darshan!

The show takes you on a spiritual journey and like dadaji mentions in the introduction it is a pilgrimage. It is an... More

An excellent and engaging depiction of a spiritual journey named Sadhu Vaswani. This museum is an exemplary depiction of a tribute being paid by a disciple to his master. I had an unique experience as a visitor.

This museum is dedicated to Sadhu Vaswani’s life & preaching. Excellent concept to present such a topic through very entertaining & hi-tech method. There are about 10 shows & you will be guided by an attendant from one show to the other. The museum must be seen in defined order & it takes about 2 hours in total with only... More

A museum that breaks the mind set of typical museum. It is rather a place where you can find peace of mind along with a great environment. And the best thing is you do not need to pay for it. What you will appreciate more is how the technology has been used to depict everything. It is located in the... More
