In 2002, the Samaj completed the construction of its building, passionately called Shankaralayam by its members. This is a dream complex, comprising a Prayer Hall on the ground floor for Satsang, independent Community Halls on the first and second floors, a Medical Centre on the third floor and a Terrace Garden. In 2006, the new Samaj Office was inaugurated. On the first floor, this office serves as a professional working area for the Managing Committee.

Sri Kirit Lapsia Hall on the first floor, Sri G.K. Kalyanasundaram Memorial Hall on the second floor and Smt. Premabai Laxmichand Lapsia Hall on the third floor are widely patronised for major social and cultural functions. These beautifully constructed, independent halls are very popular venues for social and religious functions. Each floor is self-contained and all facilities are available for celebrations and social events.
