There is another Kingdom in Gurgaon in NCR, Delhi called the “Kingdom of Dreams”. It is considered to be India’s first live entertainment, theatre and leisure destination sprawled across 6 acres of land with castle-type structures that houses two auditoriums, the Nautanki Mahal and the Showshaa theatre as well as the Culture Gully, which is a cultural and cuisine area.
The Great Indian Nautanki Company, which is jointly owned by Wizcraft International Entertainment and Apra Group are the brains behind This lavish and surreal project .
The Nautanki Mahal is an extravagant, 835-seat auditorium that stages both Indian and international theatrical productions. Zangoora -The Gypsy Prince was the first live and original Bollywood musical performed there. It boasts of state-of-the art production equipments that makes the theater experience look and sound more magical.
Kingdom of dreams: a cultural and food hub that brings to life and harmonises the distinct features of the 14 states of India, not only in aesthetic concept but in gastronomic surprises as well. The Culture Gully is a boulevard with state pavilions that showcases the food, arts and crafts and architecture of each state represented. street performances, artisans, massage centers, mystic shops and lounge bars – Kerela and Mehkhana Bar- are also found in the Culture Gully. The 500 Rs entry fee for each person comes with a card system, wherein you have to consume that 500 Rs worth for food so the entrance fee can be waived for free. But it does carry forward to your next visit the remaining amount if you are not able to consume the entire amount at your first visit. Nevertheless, my stay at the Kingdom of Dreams surely made my senses all awake and excited from the visuals and music apart from the delectable offerings that are a definite must-try! I lost track of time and became too absorbed with the festival-like atmosphere and presence of entertainment characters in the area.
As a colourful marquee spans over the 350-seater amphitheatre, the Showshaa Theater has phenomenal productions highlighting the Indian mythology, impressive circus skills and they even stage a mock lavish wedding show! The costumes and props look so grand and the actors and actresses’ performance are indeed astounding.
Behold the spectacle that awaits you when you visit the Kingdom of Dreams. This is truly one culture and leisure place that we can’t afford to miss! This is actually a great place to treat family and friends and it’s like being all over India in a day. I’m truly glad that I checked this place out myself as it left me in a state of enchantment. Better see this place yourself and hopefully it won’t leave you too speechless.
