Virasat is a cultural extravaganza spread across 4-5 days having a history of 21 years. Virasat is a vivid display of talents by Classical and Folk artists both from the country and abroad. The objective is to familiarize these programmes to the local art lovers by making them view and appreciate the arts displayed. Inculcating and improving the aesthetic taste of the audience is one more rationale behind this. Prominent names like Ms. Sonal Mansingh, Ustad Zakir Hussain, Kadri Goplanathan, Dr. Balamuralikrishna, Dr. K.J. Yesudas, Pt. Ajay Chakraborty, Padmabhushan Dr. Padma Subramnyam have performed here and have been awarded the prestigious Alva’s Virasat Award.
