Seven Wonders Park to open Today: Get Deets here!
We all have a list of places which we want to visit at least once in our lifetime. There are maximum chances of the seven wonders included in the list. Unlike reel life, it is not always possible in real life for everyone to plan a foreign vacation. But hey! There’s a great news for all the Delhizens and as well as the tourists in Delhi as ‘The Seven Wonders’ park is finally opening in Delhi on 9th of February.
It is an initiative by South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), which will be the latest tourist attraction in Delhi. The park will have the replicas of the seven wonders from all around the world with a unique point of the waste-to-art initiative. All the monuments are made up of recycled wastes and junk. Another unique point about the park is that it’s using solar energy for generating electricity.
The idea of seven wonders park has been taken from Kota but the difference is the material of which the replica of monuments is made that is the waste material.
The park will be located near Sarai Kale Khan bus terminal in the south-east. The park will include the replicas of Taj Mahal, Great Pyramid of Giza, Eiffel Tower, Leaning Tower of Pisa, Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, Rome’s Colosseum and the Statue of Liberty.
According to SDMC, they have already given them a finished look and installed old sodium lights to highlight their features. Now, work on landscaping and laying the pathways is in progress, once, these tasks are done, we will focus on installing beautiful lights all over the park.”
There are in total, three solar trees at the park. Each solar tree has the capacity to generate up to six kilowatts of power. Further, the plans are to install a wind turbine in the park.
Extra-Benefits from the Project –
The consumption of power at the park is less than the production. The left-over power will be 10-12 kilowatt. Due to the net metering, the civic body will get credit for this power in its power use.
There will be micron-sized misting nozzles on the solar tree, which will have the provision for a mist cooling technique that will allow the water to pass through it. Explaining about the technique, the SDMC Commissioner said, “These tiny water droplets will be evaporated by absorbing the heat present in their environment, thereby cooling the environment and minimizing the pollution.”
There will be boards around every replica, having details about the original monuments as well as the materials used in making the replicas, such as, old iron benches, bicycle spare parts etc. The height of the replicas will be around 25 and 30 feet, except for the Eiffel Tower, which will soar 70 feet into the air. Selfie point will also be provided for the visitors to click there picture with the monument.
It will be of a great help in many ways like, in generating money through tourists, increasing employment and talking on the educational ground it will also provide knowledge to young children as practical knowledge is far better than the theoretical knowledge.
The total cost of the project was Rs. 7.5 Crore and a small entry fee will also be charged and that money will be used for the maintenance of the place.
For the convenience of the visitors, we will also provide eateries, a parking facility and a playing area for children,” said the SDMC official.
