Jammu is the historic city but during these days its not only the City of Temples that is attracting the tourist but the newly constructed General Zorawar Singh Auditorium Complex with its vibrant backdrop has taken precedence and has managed to surpass every other square and place of interest in the city. It is attracting the people from the State as well as from national and international level.

During the year 2003, the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India, during his visit to the state, released a special grant of Rs 30 crore to the University of Jammu and it was decided to use a part of it to construct a multipurpose Auditorium Complex. In addition, a special Auditorium Fund was created and resources were raised, including through generous donations from civil society. The foundation stone for the building was laid by the then Governor and then Chancellor of the University of Jammu 

General Zorawar Singh Auditorium Complex is the name to be reckoned with even before its inauguration, it was well anticipated that General Zorawar Singh Auditorium Complex is going to be the hub of the activities. The inauguration of auditorium complex on 28th March, 2007 was in itself a event to which every one was looking forward.

The Complex, with its unique Museum and Art Gallery, is a celebration of the symbiotic relationship of Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh and showcases the rich cultural heritage and diversity of our State. The magnificent high-tech facility provides the perfect blend of creative, artistic and academic ambience to showcase the University of Jammu as a true centre of holistic education. The building is one of the first of its own kind in North India. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that this four storied state-of-the-art Auditorium Complex includes an Art Gallery, Photo Gallery, Exhibition Halls, Heritage Museum, Conference Halls, TV Studio, FM Radio Station, Media Centre, Art Studio for children and a Cafétéria with a Parisian ambience.

Hon'ble Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh couldn.'t have been more specific while complimenting the university auditorium, when he said, "the place where I am standing is the true reflection of the heights Jammu University has reached." Former Chief of the Army Staff, General N.C Vij when visited the Auditorium Complex was so much taken by its beauty and style that he sufficed by saying that, "the University has done something inspirational by displaying the rare and forgotten." The Ex-Air Chief Marshal S. P. Tyagi was so overwhelmed with the architectural design that he pen downed following words, "I am impressed with the grand vision. Very happy to see the vision being translated to reality. This is an outstanding impressive place".
