The Centre for Indian Music Experience (IME) is located in an upmarket district of the city.

Slated to open in June, the four-storey building is expected to attract around 500,000 visitors a year.

The IME has been created to immerse guests in India’s rich musical heritage. It also hopes to connect with the younger generation and to inspire creativity through music.

A range of state-of-the-art interactive exhibits are located in eight thematic galleries. These showcase the many aspects of Indian music and include an instruments gallery with 250 musical instruments. A number of computer-based interactive installations enable visitors to experiment with the process of music-making.

The complex also encompasses a Sound Garden and a Learning Centre.

The IME’s Sound Garden features a variety of sculptures, all with a musical element. These include reeds, chimes, tubular bells, plate gongs and musical stones.
