CM Mamata will inaugurate the museum. This is the world's first museum dedicated to the life and times of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the 16th-century mystic and saint, and the chief proponent of the Gaudiya Vaishnavism tradition.

The programme is held at the place where the Baghbazar Sarbajanin Durga Puja is organised. The museum will be open to all from August 14.

The project to build the museum was initiated by the Gaudiya Mission to spread the philosophy enunciated in the Vaishnava cult and the message of peace, love and harmony, as propounded by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
