Shanmukhananda Hall

"The refurbishment of Shanmukhananda Hall gave a new lease of life to this age old auditorium"

Shanmukhananda Hall caught fire in the nineties resulting in damage to the entire hall.

The steel trusses of the roof were strengthened and brought to proper alignment under the guidance of structural designers & consultants. The balcony floors were checked for loading.

The work of renovation was assigned to I.M. Kadri Architects. It was decided to keep the auditorium skeleton as it was and have the interiors changed. The stage was redesigned and a five storied tower was constructed over the new stage. The tower accommodates the medical services, bank, and offices of Shanmukhananda. (Earlier these activities were housed in corridors around the main auditorium)

The hall was finally opened in the year 1999.
