Raipur, the capital of Chhattisgarh, has immense cultural and historical significance and offers a glimpse of different cultures and heritage. Of these, the Mahant Ghasidas Memorial Museum is a shining example. Located in the heart of the city, Mahant Ghasidas Memorial Museum is a major cultural and educational centre of public interest. In 1875, this museum was established in Raipur city by the king Mahant Ghasidas of the Rajnandgaon principality and is one of India’s 10 oldest museums.
