About Attraction

Indore's town hall, known as Gandhi Hall, is a major venue for art and cultural exhibitions, with a central hall of capacity to accommodate around 2,000 people and grounds/lawns for even bigger events !! The State Government lights up this building in tri-colour on all the three national festivals !!

After a long gap of 50 years, under the 'Smart City Indore' project, this heritage building was beautifully renovated and restored to its original grandeur and splendour, in 2021 !! The Gandhi Hall campus and building have been completely renovated, including the 1200 square meters area of the interior hall which has marble flooring, wooden stage, unique beautiful painting on the walls, and a rocking wooden ceiling !! The magnificent clock tower, which was stopped earlier due to structural problems, has also been restored to ring bells and show correct times !!

The Gandhi Hall is located in a sprawling 4.25 acres campus with grounds, lawns, open air theatre, public plaza for social, religious and cultural gatherings, ample parking spaces, and even an underground library building !! The premises has a huge Green cover area too !!

The Gandhi Hall was originally known as King Edward Hall, but H. H. Yeshwant Rao Holkar II (reign: 1926 - 1948) renamed it in 1948, after the death of Mahatma Gandhi !! This town hall was designed and constructed by architect Mr. Charles Frederick Stevens from Mumbai at a cost of ₹2,50,000 and was inaugurated by the Prince of Wales, George V, in 1905 !! It was made in the Indo-Gothic style, made of White stones from Seoni and Red stones from Patan, both in the Madhya Pradesh (M. P.) state, has magnificent domes and minarets, and a huge clock-tower !!

 "The great town hall - Gandhi Hall"
It is a very beautiful monument, but you can see the way it has been maintained - its terrible now. the colours, the algae, broken window panes, litter everywhere, and all.

I hope the admin & MP Tourism do something to restore this great place !
