The first leg of his visit was the construction site of the Rungra Dolphin Aquarium.
The aquarium has a building area of 5 980 square meters and a total plottage of 14 940 square meters with 1 460 seats. It is an aquarium for aquatic creature equipped with adequate welfare and service facilities for watching performance of dolphins including a water tank of nearly 3 000 cubic meters for performance, 16 auxiliary water tanks, room for scientific and technological knowledge and soft drink stands.

He highly appreciated the laudable feats soldier-builders performed by completing in the main the vast project for the construction of the aquarium in a matter of less than a year.
Walking round the water tank for performance, auxiliary tanks, room for scientific and technological knowledge and other construction fields, he expressed great satisfaction over the fact that it has become possible to provide the people with another modern and peculiar centre for their cultural and emotional life.
He set forth tasks to be fulfilled to complete the construction in best quality.

He was very pleased to picture to himself the happy school youth and children and working people who will laugh boisterously while fully enjoying wading at the wading pool when completed on the occasion of the day of the victory in the war.
He underlined the need to add a diving tower and different service facilities to the area around the wading pool so that it may be a cultural recreation place for people which will remain impeccable even in the distant future.

It consists of two districts -- a variety of amusement facilities such as mad mouse, nose diving tower, octopus merry-go-round, temptation merry-go-round, flying cycle and various service facilities.
Making the rounds of various places of the first and second districts of the funfair, he acquainted himself in detail with its construction.
He kindly told about the need to make a new passage so that visitors may come and go to the funfair divided into the two districts and to build soft drink stands in a more fashionable style to their convenience.

The pleasure ground is a gift to be presented by the WPK to the people, he said, adding that it should be wound up by the day of the victory in the war this significant year.
Noting that grand monumental edifices startling the world such as the Rungra Pleasure Ground for People are springing up one after another across the country under the wise leadership of the WPK, he stressed the need to build more structures to suit the people's idea and feelings, aesthetic taste and demand.
