Valley’s biggest auditorium

Biggest auditorium KashmirKashmir will soon have its biggest auditorium with a capacity to seat 2,500 in the shape of convocation complex at the University of Kashmir, Srinagar, which is under completion at the cost of Rs 8 crore. This complex, spread over 25,000 sq ft, is being touted the largest in north India and the best in the country.

Vice-Chancellor Abdul Wahid Qureshi said earlier many conferences and seminars had to be rescheduled due to lack of space.

“After the construction of the complex, our accommodation problem has been solved. Now we can hold international level conferences and seminars on the campus,? he said.

This would also help boost the academic activities of the university.

This auditorium is being completed 27 years after the foundation stone had been laid by the then Chief Minister Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah on November 7, 1981, after which the work remained suspended for several years due to technical reasons.

The work on the multi-design project was resumed in February 2004 by the University Construction Division with the help of Kadiri Consultants Mumbai, and the building agency, M/s Construction Engineers, Srinagar.

It has all facilities under one roof — from holding convocations, meetings, seminars, cultural programs to screening films, and a parking area for over a thousand vehicles. This would relieve pressure on the frequently used auditorium hall of the Sher-e-Kashmir International Convention Centre (SKICC), which has a capacity to seat 700 persons.

Neatly polished Makrana marble of Rajasthan in its curved corridors with glossy tiles on the walls gives an international look to the complex. Spacious, well-designed and decorated convocation hall with balcony looks like an indoor stadium with a seating capacity for 2,175 persons.

Comfortable pushback chairs have been fixed in a pattern to match arched design. Walls have been decorated with laminated teak sheets, bordered with a strip of typical Kashmiri embroidered crewel cloth. A wall-to-wall carpet, thick enough to provide cushion to feet, has been laid all over the hall. Even the doors of the hall have been treated acoustically to avoid any interference with the sound inside the hall.

With its own central heating system (CHS), the hall can be used in winters too. The complex, specifically the hall, is fireproof.
