Inauguration of Marwar International Centre in Jodhpur Rajasthan 4 min read

The Marwar International Center in Jodhpur was inaugurated by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. He emphasized the government's ongoing efforts to safeguard the cultural heritage of every region in the state and promote intellectual exchange. 

  • As a part of this endeavor, town halls are being constructed in multiple districts.
  • In Jaipur, two notable establishments have been constructed: the Rajasthan International Center and the Constitution Club. Similarly, the Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Social Sciences, modeled after the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, has also been established. 
  • Additionally, MICE centers are currently being built in four districts, including Jodhpur, at a cost of Rs 100 crore each.

NOTE:  MICE is an acronym for Meeting, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions. MICE is quickly growing in Rajasthan, providing countless opportunities in the tourism sector. In the recently announced 2023-24 Budget by Gehlot, there are plans to establish MICE centers for organizing international-level conventions and exhibitions in popular tourist destinations like Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, and Ajmer. 

Marwar International Center

The Marwar International Centre is set to become a hub for cultural and ideological exchange. By preserving and promoting art, culture, and traditions, the center will put Jodhpur on the map both nationally and internationally. The auditorium, occupying 65000 square meters of land, can seat up to 1350 people and boasts two dormitories for artists, two green rooms, two banquet lawns, and an exhibition center spanning 5820 square meters. 

  • The Chief Minister expressed that the Marwar International Centre will not only preserve and promote art, culture, and traditions, but also bring honor to Jodhpur through national and international events. 
  • He acknowledged the state's folk artists for their exceptional talent and contribution to the state's distinct identity in the country and overseas. 
  • The Chief Minister emphasized the importance of preserving art and culture as a valuable heritage of society, and assured that the state government is constantly working towards their protection and promotion. To support the welfare of folk artists, a Folk Artist Welfare Fund worth Rs 100 crore has been established in the state.

Gehlot also highlighted the opening of several prestigious institutions in Jodhpur. In the past 4 years, 4 universities have been established here, including MBM University, Rajiv Gandhi Fintech University, and most recently, the foundation stone was laid for Mahatma Gandhi Divyang University and Marwar Medical University.
