Sri Aurobindo Auditorium
The Auditorium is an impressive structure with an iconic roof projection and a 650-seat auditorium that probably provides the largest theatre seating capacity in south India. Over the years it has been the scene of creative and innovative programmes plus workshops in music, dance, art and theatre. It has also served as a venue for national and international seminars and a centre for Indian and international films and film festivals. In fact, it has acted as the cultural heart of Auroville, and the main centre of the International Zone since it started functioning.
