  • Also known as Gachibowli indoor stadium. I has seating arrangements with more than about 1000 chairs arranged on different stairs level. The place also hosts different events like concerts and conferences. I have been there to attend Tedx event. The center stage was visible from even the corner of the seats. There's a huge Display panel above the center stage. There are ample of toilets for both male and female inside this stadium building. Parking is near the entrance of the Gachibowli stadium campus.
