Nirala Srijanpeeth - The center for creative writing, organized several literary events.

The site is on a gently sloping plateau overlooking the upper lake.


The natural contours of the site have been used to create a series of sunkun courts and
terrace gardens around which a number of cultural facilities are organised.
These cover a wide range and include a museum of tribal art, a library of Indian Poetry,
galleries for Contemporary Art, workshops for an artist-in-residence.
Bharat Bhavan houses a full fledged theatre repertoire company and extensive facilities for
the performing arts, including the Antarang(indoor auditorium) and The Bhairang (open-air
amphitheatre) overlooking the lake.

The terraces and courtyards once again reflect Correas concern with progression through
space- the maze or puzzle- where parts are casually revealed and the complex of internal
streets act rather like a village layout. In this way the architect makes the building reflect
Bhopals own organisational layout.
The centre, which started in 1975 and was completed in 1981, is one of Correas most
sophisticated expressions of the ideas of maze ; of progression of his early structural and
design statements.

Another device, the top lit cannon, provides the lighting and ventilation to the sunken
covered spaces.
In addition to these the openings to the courtyards and terraces have two sets of shutters: the
inner ones consisting of a combination of glass and openable panels for ventilation, and the
outer ones with large wooden doors which can be closed for security.
