The project is situated on a 13.9 acre plot of land and is planned to open in 2016. The museum was designed to reflect the rich history of Bihar, the birthplace of Siddhartha, who later became Shakyamuni Buddha. The architecture evokes the cultural history and epic scope of the Bihar region in a manner that reflects the past and future of India.

 

AWA’s lighting solution is intended to evoke a sense of calm and peacefulness. AWA has worked closely with the architects, and with Opolis, to create an architectural masterpiece that showcases the life and times of Buddha and the glorious history of Bihar.
