The latest addition to list of attraction around the capital is one that outshines its counterparts across the world. It’s a fantasy themed region inspired by traditional Indian architecture, costumes, music, gypsies and mysticism. This larger than life place is called Kingdom of Dreams and here’s what you need to know about it.
The star of Kingdom of Dreams is the spectacular Bollywood musical, Zangoora. The show is based on the life of a prince who was lost as a child and grows up amongst gypsies. The show’s pyrotechincs, acrobats, music, dance, colour and spirit have compelled people to place it above most Broadway productions. Absolutely stunning. Steve Wynn is amongst the shows admirers and it has been reported that he’s taking Zangoora to his hotels in Las Vegas.
Almost all Indian states are represented at the Kingdom of Dreams’ Culture Gully. Extravagant havelis represent Rahasthan and Lucknow, a massive kettuvalam houses the Keralite restaurant and a small manmade beach sits pretty next to little Goa. Shopping for the products that are iconic of each region is popular amongst guests albeit they are priced steeply.
While you’re enjoying your lunch or dinner you can enjoy periodic dances which are performed outside ‘Lucknow’. Various Indian folk dances are performed after every 30 minutes or so.
IIFA Buzz Cafe
For Hindi movie buffs the Bollywood centric IIFA Buzz Cafe is a good place to sit back and enjoy a few drinks. The competitive pricing and unique theme keeps the people coming in after sunset.
PRICING: On weekdays the entry ticket for an adult is INR 500, 70% of which is redeemable in the form of food. On weekends the entry ticket goes up to INR 750 per adult. Prices for Zangoora start at INR 750 and are not included in the entry charges. The doors of Kingdom of Dreams open at 1pm.
Kingdom of Dreams is located in Gurgaon. Once near the IFFCO Chowk Metro station, well placed boards direct people easily to the destination. One can take a metro to this station and then reach by rickshaw otherwise taxis can be hired from Delhi itself.
