The building seen on the left side of the road was constructed by Valiya Thirumeni to accommodate the Seminary students.  H.E.  named it as 'SYRIAN HOSTEL'; a large number of seminary students once stayed here.   But from 1970's this building is not being used for the purpose it was constructed and also its name has been  changed since then.
