An open air auditorium VUDA Gurajada Kalakshetram that was constructed at a cost of Rs.10 crore will be inaugurated by the Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu during his visit on Wednesday.

The open-air auditorium with modern amenities and sound system will have a poly carbonate roof-top imported from Israel, electronic screen and high quality sound system. The roof work started in March 2016 also taking into consideration the impact of cyclones particularly in the light of Hudhud cyclone. VUDA Vice Chairman P.Basant Kumar said that the seating in the beginning was planned for 3,000 but finally it was decided to replace the cement benches with modern seating. As a result, the capacity is now 2,300.

VUDA intents to host national and international cultural programmes at the venue. ‘We intent to promote literary and cultural activities by providing the venue for drams, poetry recitations, mushariyas and sufi music etc.,’, he said.
