Hawla Indoor Stadium

The last time I was inside the stadium, it was not yet complete and had not yet been named Hawla Stadium and was called Pitar te tlang stadium, now it has been named after CM of Mizoram Lalthanhawla. Below are photos taken in 2011 and now recent photos from 2018 Mizoram Super League games.

Pitar te tlang Indoor Stadium maybe the biggest Indoor stadium in Mizoram once completed, some photos of the Indoor stadium under construction.
