The Aquarium’s Management and Structure:
As you enter the aquarium, soft music plays and you are greeted by stunning architecture. UIT Udaipur has spent approximately Rs. 2 crores on the aquarium’s construction, which is obvious, and another Rs. 3 crores on the gallery’s interiors, which is even more obvious.
To provide the aquatic life with a natural habitat, the whole inside of the facility is coated in insulating material and very little light reaches the premises.
The Manshapurn Karni Mata Ropeway team, led by Mr. Kailash Khandelwal, constructed and manages the aquarium gallery. Anjali Azad Dubey of Pratham Interiors, recognized for her green designs, provided creative consultation for the aqua gallery’s interiors. Mr. Aashish Mahesh Baagla, a wildlife expert located in Mumbai, provides advice on fish procurement, well-being, and maintenance.
