With an investment of 169 million yuan, Lhasa Planetarium will cover an area of 7,692 square meters, becoming China’s first-class astronomical education base.

The planetarium will feature Tibetan astronomy, religions and folk customs, said Zhang Baozhu who is in charge of the project.

In the four-floor planetarium, visitors can get a closer look to the Universe and learn about humans' space exploration.

The planetarium is expected to attract 10,000 visitors every year, said Zhang.
