University Auditoriums :-

General Zorawar Singh Auditorium :-

The General Zorawar Singh Auditorium is a State of Art auditorium. The Auditorium Complex is named after one of the most illustrious sons of Jammu, General Zorawar Singh. It was the then Chancellor of the University, Lt. Gen. (Retd.) S. K. Sinha, PVSM, who suggested the name. According to the family tradition, Zorawar was born in about 1784 AD in a Chandravanshi Kahluria family at the village of Ansar in tehsil Hamirpur of the Kangra district. As a youth, Zorawar Singh was a bold and intrepid adventurer who served as a soldier in the army of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and Maharaja Sansar Chand of Kangra. Later, he joined Maharaja Gulab Singh’s army and his valiant and chivalrous disposition caught the attention of Gulab Singh who appointed Zorawar as Inspector of Commissariat supplies for all the forts north of Jammu. When Kishtwar was annexed by Gulab Singh in 1820, Zorawar Singh was appointed as Hakim (Governor) of that district, a position he held upto 1836. The stage was set for Zorawar’s greatest military expedition. He prepared his army for combat in the lofty snow bound lands north of the Himalayas. Zorawar Singh’s conquest of Ladakh, Baltistan and Tibet is etched in golden words in the annals of high altitude warfare, and can be compared to Hannibal’s march across the Alps.
                                       The Auditorium has a seating capacity of more than 1500. The auditorium can be divided into two parts: the main auditorium with a capacity of more than 1000, and a mini auditorium - with its own hydraulic stage, acoustic, sliding-folding partition - with a seating capacity of about 500. Two hi-tech elevators are an added convenience. The Art Gallery in the basement houses the Curator’s Room, the Miniature Gallery, a special lift for the physically challenged and a Freight Elevator for carriage of Heavy artifacts. The T.V. Studio in the second basement includes a Control Room, Rehearsal Room, Editing Room and a modern studio. The ground floor includes the Museum, a Souvenir shop, a Photo Gallery, the Curator's Room and the Cafeteria. On the ground floor, there is also a Special Complex with facilities like a Lounge Room, Dining Hall, and Pantry and with direct access to the stage. In addition, the ground floor also hosts a Conference Room, a Communication Room, Administration Office, Green Room (Ladies), Green Room (Gents), and the Administrator’s Room.
