It showcases the contemporary and imaginative exhibits minds on experiences, working models, visual reality and live demonstrations to understand science and technology to the common man. After which we went to Adalaj Stepwell. The atmosphere inside the well is six degrees cooler than the outside. Another remarkable feature of this stepwell is that out of the many stepwells in Gujarat, it is the only one with three entrance stairs. All three stairs meet at the first storey, underground in a huge square platform, which has an octagonal opening on top. This stepwell is a spectacular example of Indo-Islamic architecture and design.
From Adalaj stepwell we went to Vadilal and Amul plants where we saw the entire process of ice cream manufacturing from collection of milk to the final production and refegration of the delicious ice cream.
