The Assam State Museum will open two new galleries to visitors on Friday.
The Natural History Gallery and Mayurpokhi Khel-Nao Gallery will be unveiled by the vice-chancellor of Cotton University, Bhabesh Chandra Goswami, and state cultural affairs department secretary Madhurima Baruah Sen.
“The Natural History Gallery reflects the rich bio-diversity of the state, and it aims to provide a learning experience to visitors about the various species of flora and fauna,” an official statement issued on Thursday said.
“The Mayurpokhi Khel-Nao Gallery will display the Khel-Nao introduced in the Kamalabari Satra during the period of Sri Badula Padma Ata. The Satra Samiti donated it to the Assam State Museum in 1973,” it said.
The curated gallery showcasing the Mayurpokhi Khel-Nao highlights the cultural significance and the rich heritage of the Vaishnavite culture of the Kamalabari Satra in the river island of Majuli.
