The lawn is 40,000 square metres in size and it can host over 50,000 guests at a single go. The total area of event ground is 60,000 square meters in size. The stage has been constructed as a fixed structure. It can accommodate over 100 people. It is connected to a ground floor + basement building which also has a multipurpose hall, three AC rooms, store room, pantry and other facilities. This building has stage and huge long stretch of lawn on the front side, while a small square loan next on other side.

Though final details are not out, it is learnt that the event ground will be available(rates per 5,000 sq/m) for Rs 60,000 for commercial purpose, Rs 30,000 for spiritual purpose, Rs 15,000 for government purpose, Rs 45,000 for exhibition purpose and Rs 40,000 for marriage and social purpose.
