Nearly 150 people associated with the family and Reliance, were present at the inaugural ceremony for the memorial. The memorial is instituted in the house where Dhirubhai Ambani grew up during his early years before moving to Aden in Yemen to work at an oil company. It houses a photo gallery with archive photographs of the Ambani family and Dhirubhai Ambani’s life journey. The original structure of the house has been kept the same while some portion is being converted into a museum of sorts. This memorial with the museum will be thrown open to the public within the next few weeks.
