Museums on Ramayana and Constitution soon

The state government is to open two museums that would deploy technology to explain two of India’s important texts.

The Museum on Indian Constitution, christened Samvidhana Vastu Sangrahalaya, will contain interactive tools to expound its salient features, while Maharshi Valmiki mattu Ramayana Vastu Sangrahalaya will bring Valmiki’s greatest work to life with technological aids.

An eight-acre space near Nayandanahalli has been identified to set up Samvidhana Vastu Sangrahalaya, which will also include a library containing the best commentary on the Constitution and their Kannada translation, social justice minister Priyank Kharge said.

The museum will create an atmosphere conducive for research scholars from across the globe to study the Indian Constitution.

The state government has estimated an Rs 120 crore investment on the museum, of which it sanctioned Rs 20 crore.

The government has identified a 4.36 acre land in Yelahanka for the Maharshi Valmiki mattu Ramayana Vastu Sangrahalaya.

The museum will also depict the way of life of the Budakattu community. “Several members of the Budakattu community had participated in the Freedom Struggle. The museum will showcase their contributions,” Kharge said.
