The fact is that the giant Dinosaurs went extinct even before primitive humans came into existence! But they have always sparked the imagination of humans ever since the first fossil of a dinosaur was unearthed almost 350 years ago.
And even after millions of years of their extinction, they are anything but forgotten. There is still a lot of curiosity to know the facts related to dinosaurs and in celebration of these once-powerful creatures, Dinosaur Days are also observed twice a year, on 15 May and 1 June. On this occasion, the Dinosaur Festival India has planned Dinosaur Festivals in different cities across the country between May and August.
These exhibitions feature larger-than-life replicas of different dinosaur species that lived in India around 65 million years ago. Come face-to-face with the 20m tall Brachiosaurus with its moving tail, the Tyrannosaurus Rex with its scary teeth 12 inches long, and other formidable species like Triceratops, Isisaurus, Rajasaurus, and Bruhathkayosaurus among others.
An unforgettable experience of the Jurassic world is on offer at these Dinosaur Festivals. For anyone interested in dinosaurs and their era, isn’t this enough reason to book your flight to Delhi or Mumbai or Chennai, the host cities? You can plan a visit to these exhibitions with your kids as they are bound to have a gala time at the dinosaur festival, enjoying fun activities like fossil excavations, jumping castles, amusement rides and even get their photo clicked with these Mesozoic era animals.
