The Tourism Department of Odisha conducted a trial run of Water Projection Mapping in a bid to position Odisha as a futuristic tourist destination. A first of it’s kind Musical fountain & Multimedia laser show was organized at Narendra pond near Shree Jagannath Mandir, Puri to provide a unique experience to all the viewers.
The 3D illusion is created from light beaming through an imperfect wall of water. Originally, water projections were most seen as theatrical effects, at special sound & light shows, and also movie premieres. Now with better technology, new techniques evolved and the ‘sprinkler’ shaped screen of mist now provides the most common solution for demonstrating this technology.
These 8 photos show how surreal it looks:

5. Jai Jagannath
6. Devotion in 3D
7. The Message
8. Silhouette of Belief
The show was done on a trial basis and is expected to go live soon at various locations. We even heard, there are possibilities of it being screened at the Bindusagar Lake too!
A brilliant initiative by #OdishaTourism, we are sure initiatives like this will position Odisha as a futuristic tourist destination and provide an unmatched experience to it’s visitors using technology. If you are still confused about the possibilities and the visual grandeur it provides, check this Nissan Video out.
