It is located near the Rajmao Pukhuri.

This will have enhanced data mapping, data logging and astronomical planetary motion. The digital planetarium reduces the maintenance costs and increases the reliability for such systems: they employ few moving parts and do not generally require synchronization of movement across the dome between several separate systems.
