Rajkot: Industrial tycoon Dhirubhai Ambani's memorial in Chorwad town in Gujarat's Junagadh district will be thrown open to public from February 3 in the presence of family matriarch Kokilaben Ambani, sources said on Wednesday.

The memorial is the same place where the founder of Reliance Group spent his childhood. A rented section of the bungalow, then called 'Mangarolwalo Delo', was the place where he lived.

Dhirubhai had purchased the bungalow in 2002 which is now renamed as 'Dhirubhaino Delo'.

The memorial will be thrown open for visitors from Friday amid presence of Kokilaben Ambani and Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) group president Parimal Nathwani, sources said.

The bungalow has three sections, comprising a picture gallery, the old residence of the legendary industrialist and an auditorium for screening a short film on Dhirubhai's life to visitors.

A sepia gallery at the structure depicts Dhirubhai's journey captured in pictures while his old dwelling is arranged the way it used to be when he lived there.

The memorial was inaugurated on December 28 by Ambani family's spiritual guru Ramesh Bhai Oza and entire Ambani clan, including brothers Anil and Mukesh and their sisters Dipti Salgaonkar and Neena Kothari, attended the function.
