The construction of the Rasamala Open Hall is to complement the existing facilities that had been previously built by the KIFC. On the year 2011 to 2012, KIFC had built 10 buildings, including office building, dormitories, guest houses, mosque , information center, security post, and canteen. It is expected that those facilities would be able to provide comfort for visitors, and make more more people and students interested in visiting the SEETF for recreation, education and other activities.
