Kurukshetra Panorama & Science Centre

Punjab & Haryana

The circular-shaped Kurukshetra Panorama & Science Centre, next door to the Sri Krishna Museum, contains a gory diorama of the Mahabharata battle, where vultures pick at severed heads below a fiery, air-brushed sky. The less disturbing ground floor has interactive science exhibits for kids.
