It was inaugurated in the year 1987 on his birthday that is 18th September by the then Prime Minister of Mauritius, Sir Anerood Jugnauth in the presence of the Governor General Sir Veerasamy Ringadoo, the Minister of Education Arts and Culture Armoogum Parsuramen and Dr Navinchadra Ramgoolam.
The SSR Memorial Centre for Culture is dedicated in the loving memory of Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam for his significant role as the architect of Mauritius’ independence and to commemorate his position in the country as the Father of the Nation. The 150-year-old centre is rich in its symbolism and history and the living manifestation of the historical and architectural heritage of Mauritius.
