The largest indoor Mural at Shyam Vatika

The largest indoor mural measures 904 square metres (9,730 sq ft) and was painted by six artists from 27 February 2005 to 5 March 2005 at Shyam Vatika, Saraswati Estate, Cimmco Tiraha, Gwalior, India. The painting was co-ordinated by a professional mural artist, Aasutosh Panigrahi, and the owner of the place, R P Maheshwary and Ankur Maheshwary.

The art features on all interior walls and ceilings of a privately owned Auditorium, Shyam Vatika, which is used for Banquet purposes. The art as said was intentionally done to break a previously held record.

In August 2005 the art was appraised by Guinness World Records as the World's Largest Indoor Mural.

The six artists led by Aasutosh Panigrahi broke a previously held Australian record of 713 square metres (7,670 sq ft). The previous largest indoor mural measured 727.52 square metres (7,831.0 sq ft) and was made at Youth Club, Bernie, Tasmania, Australia on 30 June 2004.
