About the location:

Paleontologists discovered the fossil remains and bones near the town of Rayioli in Balasinor in the 1980s. Since then, the region has been swamped with researchers, and a number of excavations have taken conducted in the area, with the discoveries revealing the existence of more than 13 dinosaur species that lived 65 million years ago.

Further excavations have shown that a squat, thick-legged, heavy-bodied carnivorous dinosaur with a crested horn, Rajasaurus Narmandensis, King of Narmada, was a squat, thick-legged, heavy-bodied carnivorous dinosaur with a crested horn (the first half of the name comes from Raja or King due to the crested horn and the second half of the name originates due to its geographical location which was near the river Narmada). Tyrannosaurus Rex belongs to the carnivorous family of dinosaurs.

A visit to the fossil park will undoubtedly inspire you to learn more about Gujarat’s dinosaur heritage. And the state government has created a Dinosaur Museum to satisfy your appetite for the same. The museum is about 25,000 square feet in size, with ten galleries in the basement and ground level displaying various types of displays (films and exhibitions). On Rajasaurus Narmadensis, an unusual 3-D film is being created. Other galleries contain information about Dinosaurs of India and Gujarat, Fossil Exhibits, and a variety of other things that will make you feel like a kid again. This museum is available in digital, print, and static formats.

The state government has provided not only knowledge about dinosaurs and their fossils, but also a Time Machine, 3-D film, an interactive and entertaining Dino fun for kids area, a vivid exhibition of Mesozoic periods, a souvenir store, and other attractions. The museum will have up to 40 sculptures on display that will provide insight on their size, form, behaviours, and environment. An exact duplicate of these animals’ habitat may be found in the atrium. A step inside the atrium takes you 65 million years back in time.
