The Gandhi Hall was originally known as King Edward Hall, but H. H. Yeshwant Rao Holkar II (reign: 1926 - 1948) renamed it in 1948, after the death of Mahatma Gandhi.  This town hall was designed & constructed by architect Mr. Charles Frederick Stevens from Mumbai at a cost of Rs. 2,50,000 and was inaugurated by Prince of Wales, George V in 1905. Made in the Indo-Gothic style,  White stones from Seoni & Red stones from Patan in M.P were widely used   for the construction of  domes and minarets that enhance  the look of the building. The added attraction is a huge clock-tower.
