for international conferences, plenary sessions, trade & academic shows, exhibitions, beauty pageants and musical & drama events.
Deemed as one of Asia's most up-to-date conference venues and ranked as South Asia's best, the BMICH blends the best of
professional facilities with the natural beauty of Paradise offering memories that last a lifetime. Sri Lanka, famed for its
profuse natural beauty, from the misty hills to the exotic palm fringed sandy beaches - its evergreen forests untouched by
civilizations and the diverse flora and fauna makes it a most sought after milieu of the western traveler.
The rich cultural
heritage of more than 2500 years along with the welcoming nature of its citizen, makes Sri Lanka the ultimate destination for
The aesthetic appeal of the Hall as seen from outside is a matter of individual response which is best left to each viewer to decide for himself.
Most viewers agree that the skyline and facade are an unforgettable sight. The octagonal shape of the building is in accord with traditions of
Sri Lanka's indigenous architecture. The design of the interior is simple consisting of spacious halls, high ceilings supported by chaste columns
imparting an immaculate atmosphere and finish to the whole.
Aesthetically it is beautiful visual experience whether in the day time or in the night, under fluid light or by moon-light when it is bathed in the
iridescent glow of its marble. Of special interest is the marble bust of the late Prime Minister which stands on the platform at the end of the entrance
to the Hall. It was produced in China by Chinese sculptors who had never seen the late Prime Minister and were therefore guided in their work only by
his photographs and description. The striking resemblance it bears to the original is a measure of their genius. At the rear of the bust, as a background
as it were, is a large mural painting representing a panoramic view of the hinterland as seen from Colombo and depicting some of the familiar landmarks
of the island such as the peak of Sri Pada, the Bible rock and Kandy. This mural is the world of three outstanding Chinese painters.
