The Sri Sathya Sai Space Theatre was inaugurated in 1985 by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Located in the Vidyagiri Educational Institution campus at Prasanthi Nilayam, Puttaparthi, this Planetarium is the only one between Bangalore and Hyderabad in this part of India. In keeping with the Founder's vision of providing education free of cost, no admission fees are charged for shows at the Planetarium. Since the Planetarium is located in a rural area, special emphasis is placed on creating shows in the local language Telugu. Since we are at a pilgrim centre which attracts visitors from all over India and the world, we also have shows in Hindi and English.
Visitors are welcome to regular shows on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Educational institutions and other groups can arrange for special shows by contacting us. You can also write a review for Sri Sathya Sai Space Theatre on TripAdvisor.
