THE MAIN ENTRANCE GETS A FACE-LIFT
The unique architecture that has come up there greets all who enter Montfort. To the left of the entrance stands a finely designed waterfall and fountains. The three symmetrical grey vertical walls represent the three pioneers, who were instrumental for the advent of the Montfortian presence in India.
The walls again depict the figures of the founder, the three pioneers and Rev.Bro.Eleazer, who held the office of the Principal for a number of years. Against the back drop of great men like Jesus Christ, the Superstar, Gandhiji, Nehru, Einstein, Mother Teresa, Isaac Newton, C.V.Raman, Bharathiyar, Thiruvalluvar, Shakespeare and Tagore stands the imposing statue of Rev.Bro.Eleazer, the icon of Indian Provinces. Water falling from the three walls form a sheet of water and flows-down three streams, dotted with many small steps, representing over 120 institutions established by the Indian Provinces, spread far and wide from North East to Kanniyakumari.
Further-down, water gushes forth from a round cascade and disperses all along the sides. This represents the continuous flow of students from our institution and their contribution to the society at large. The small triangle – the "TITCH MEMORIAL"- with Bro.Eleazer's statue, stands as a tribute to the person who has been instrumental for what Montfort is today…The Indian Provinces are today!! The small triangular beds all around the statue represent the many years that he served as the Principal. The architecture thus is theme based.
