Had high hopes with the name, but got disappointed at the end. The access is restricted to a small museum and there is no way to visit / check the observatory

Very informative place for all, especially kids. They can surely learn some new things about solar system. You can view the places using binocular. There is a museum also.

It was a very different experience. The solar observatory offers a very unique experience. I would love to visit this place again if and when I get a chance.

We loved the walk to the observatory but once there the telescopes were a bit disappointed and were not much better than using the naked eye. The circular walk is magnificent and well recommended to anyone visiting Kodai.
