Home » Places to see in Bangalore » Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain

Indira Gandhi Musical Park - Energy Park - Located bang opposite the Nehru Planetarium. A creation of B N A Technology Consulting Ltd, Hong Kong, the musical fountain was inaugurated in 1995 with work starting on it in 1997. It is the first computerized fountain in India that has been running continuously for over four years without any trouble. Fitted with 1000 nozzles, it has 15 formations and 27 combinations of fountains on a bed area of 30 meters by 10 meters. Spread over 17 hectares of land, the park is maintained by the Department of Horticulture and includes a play area for children. At the entrance to the park is a railway engine placed in honour of the then Central Railway Minister, C K Jaffer Sharief, who presented the musical fountain.

It is India's first energy park also, maintained by the Horticulture Department and the department of Karnataka Renewable Energy. And so while you make your way towards the fountain, solar panels, a windmill and a biomass plant will catch your attention. The park uses energy generated from these non-conventional sources for powering lights in the evenings. This includes the beautiful, musical fountains with their multi-colored lighting.

The Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain in Bangalore conducts sound and light shows in the evenings. These shows feature fountains dancing to the tunes of patriotic songs, popular Bollywood numbers and a few Kannada songs. The shows start with an introduction to the fountain in Kannada followed by the national song of ‘Vande Mataram’. It ends on a spectacular note to the music of ‘Sare jahan se achha’, giving most of its viewers, goose flesh.

The musical fountain show is a perfect example of synchronization of music and technology. The flow is patterned in such an apt fashion that not a single beat of music is missed. Each rhythm is followed with the jets of water performing as efficiently if not better than trained, human dancers. And formations with colored lights are as perfect too ranging from a swaying peacock tail to showcasing a rainbow colored mist. For further visual delight, there is a projector in the backdrop that displays still images relevant to the song or music.
