Start to unravel the mysteries of India's yogic wisdom at Diorama-museum of Bhagavad-gita. The museum features 11 life-size dioramas, which depict scenes from Gita, the 700-verse Sanskrit scripture that is part of the Hindu epic Mahabharata. The meticulously crafted sculptures were made by Hare Krishna artists in the late 1970s, using India's ancient doll-making techniques and traditional materials such as bamboo, clay, rice straw, and rice husk. Simulations, light shows, music, and video projections complete the magic of this immersive 45-minute walk. A gift shop and a vegetarian restaurant are situated next to the museum.
