  • Love this place. A cute auditorium where even a murmur in stage audible everywhere in audience that too without a mic!!! An architectural marvelous
  • Multipurpose complex hosts variety of exhibitions and shows. Premises is a fine architectural gem well preserved with modern amenities. There used to a gaity theater hence the name
