World Konkani Hall of Fame (Vishwa Konkani Keerti Mandir) is a shrine at World Konkani Centre to great Konkani Men and Women who have rendered commendable service aimed at the betterment of the society in various fields such as art, folklore, literature, education, science, technology, banking, politics and administration etc.
The Mandir consists of specially commissioned, hand painted portraits of eminent Konkani people. These portraits are aimed at acknowledging their contributions and also to give the generation next a glimpse of the Konkani people who have made valuable contributions to the society. It has become a focal point for Konkani Pride.
The shrine has been installed at the Upper floor of the Left wing of World Konkani Centre. The hall of fame is named after Shri Vittal Kini and Smt. Rukmini V. Kini recognising the generous donation made by their earnest Grand Daughter Kum. Dhamya Ramadas Kini for developing World Konkani Hall of Fame.
