India’s First Underwater Museum

News
The Indian Navy, National Institute of Ocean Technology, National Centre for Coastal Research and an NGO called PondyCan, along with the Puducherry Government, are all set to develop India’s first underwater museum. The navy has already agreed to gift the decommissioned INS Cuddalore, a modified minesweeper, for this one-of-its-kind project. INS Cuddalore was operational for 30 years and had covered 30,000 nautical miles before it was decommissioned in March 2018. To create the underwater museum, this 196ft-long and 40ft-wide minesweeper will be sent to the seabed at a depth of 36mts, about 7kms off the coast of Puducherry. The museum will allow divers to follow trails and routes in and out of the ship to give them a complete underwater experience. It will also serve as a great destination for scuba diving and snorkeling.
