It was established in 1982 and is most famous for being the location of the Feszty Panorama, a cyclorama by Árpád Feszty and his assistants, depicting the beginning of the Hungarian conquest of the Carpathian Basin in 895; the painting was completed in 1894 for the 1000th anniversary of the event. In the 1970s, a decision was made to build a heritage park in Csongrád County. Restoration of the Arrival of the Hungarians painting and the construction of a new rotunda for the cyclorama began. Construction stopped in 1979 and parts of the canvas were again stored rolled up. In 1991, a Polish group of restorers won the contract for a new restoration. Since 1995 it has been on display again, together with artificial terrain and hidden speakers playing sound effects, it is the main attraction of the heritage park of Ópusztaszer.

Maranta arundinacea

Maranta arundinacea known as arrowroot, West Indian arrowroot, obedience plant, Bermuda arrowroot, ararao or hulankeeriya, is a large, perennial herb found in rainforest habitats. Arrowroot flour is now produced commercially in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Arrowroot was one of the earliest plants to be domesticated for food in northern South America, with evidence of exploitation or cultivation of the plant dating back to 8200 BCE. Arrowroot is a perennial plant growing to a height of between 0.3 m and 1.5 m. Its leaves are lanceolate; the edible part of the plant is the rhizome. Twin clusters of small white flowers bloom about 90 days after planting; the plant produces seed and reproduction is by planting part of a rhizome with a bud. Rhizomes are ready for harvesting 10–12 months after planting as leaves of the plant begin to wilt and die; the rhizomes are fleshy and grow from 20 cm to 45 cm long. The arrowroot plant originated in the Amazon rainforest of north-western Brazil and neighboring countries.

It grows best between temperatures of 23 °C and 29 °C with annual precipitation between 150 cm and 200 cm. The dormant rhizomes can withstand temperatures as low as 5 °C. In the continental United States, arrowroot is cultivated as an outside plant only in southern Florida. Maranta arundinacea is native to Central America, the West Indies and South America, it is cultivated in the many warm countries and is considered naturalized in Jamaica, Bermuda, the Netherlands Antilles, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Kazan Rettō, Mauritius, Réunion, Equatorial Guinea, Florida, Cambodia and the Philippines. The Caribbean island nation of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is the world's largest grower of arrowroot and producer of arrowroot flour. In Kerala, arrowroot, locally called bilathi koova, is cultivated to produce an digestible starch. Radio-carbon dating has established that M. arundinacea was one of the first plants domesticated in prehistoric South America. Arrowroot, along with leren and bottle gourd became cultivated plants in northern South American and Panama between 8200 BCE and 5600 BCE.

Some archaeologists believe that arrowroot was first used by Native Americans not as food but as a poultice to extract poison from wounds caused by spears or arrows. Evidence of the use of arrowroot as food has been found dating from 8200 BCE at the San Isidro archaeological site in the upper Cauca River valley of Colombia near the city of Popayán. Starch grains from arrowroot were found on grinding tools, it is unclear whether the arrowroot had been gathered or grown, although the elevation of the site of 1,700 metres is outside the normal range of elevations at which M. arundinacea grows in the wild. Thus, the plant may have been introduced at San Isidro from nearby lowland rain forest areas in a pioneering effort to cultivate it. Stone hoes for cultivation of plants have been found which date as old as 7700 BCE in the middle Cauca valley, 150 kilometres north of San Isidro. Domestication of arrowroot at these early dates was on a small-scale with gardens of only a few plants being planted in alluvial soils near streams to ensure the steady supply of moisture needed during the growing season by arrowroot and other similar root crops.

The exploitation of arrowroot foot was complicated by the difficulty of extracting the starch from the fibrous roots. The roots must first be pounded or ground soaked in water to separate the starch from the fibers; the starch is excellent for digestibility. Arrowroot starch is used in food preparations and confectionery, for industrial applications such as cosmetics and glue; the residue of starch extraction has a high fibre content and can be fed to livestock

Udhampur–Jammu highway

Udhampur Jammu highway is the national highway and the road in Jammu and Kashmir that connects municipal committee of Udhampur with Jammu City.
