New international convention centre in Varanasi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be inaugurating a new convention centre in his parliamentary constituency Varanasi on Thursday. The Japan-assisted Varanasi International Cooperation and Convention Centre (VCC) will be a well-equipped convention centre, which officials term as a "landmark building".

The convention centre comprises the main hall with a seating capacity of 1,200, a gallery, meeting rooms, and parking for 120 cars.

Christened 'Rudraksh', which means prayer beads, the convention is designed to offer a glimpse of the cultural richness of the ancient city, officials said. 

The two-storey convention centre has come up on 2.87 hectares of land and has a seating capacity of 1,200 people.

Officials said the objective of the project was to provide opportunities for social and cultural interactions between people that would strengthen the city's competitiveness by developing its tourism sector.

It is ideal for holding international conferences, exhibitions and music concerts and other events and the gallery is done up with murals depicting Varanasi's art, culture and music, they added.

The Japan International Cooperation Agency-assisted Varanasi International Cooperation and Convention Centre's (VCC) main hall may be partitioned into smaller spaces when needed, officials told journalists. (SAM)
