History[edit]

The site before construction
The pavilion did not exist during the 1940's and the Khudside slope had no trees or retaining walls as is seen now.
The Old Pavilion before trees were planted on the slope post landslide of 1950's
[1] All this was done after massive landslides that occurred in the early 1950's. (The retaining walls came up way sooner). The extended seating space came into existence after at least after 1970.[2]
