TRIBAL CULTURE MUSEUM
We are maintaining one Tribal Culture Museum where tradition, culture and heritage of various tribal societies of several North-Eastern states have been displayed. In addition to promoting the spirit of communal harmony and fellow feeling among various clans of tribals the Museum is drawing large number of visitors every day from all over the country who are regularly taken to our Mission by conducted tour buses from Shillong by Meghalaya Tourism Development Corporation and other travel agencies apart from many more visitors who prefer to come by themselves.

 The Show Room The Ashrama has a shrine where the portrait of Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna is worshipped every day. Occasions like birth anniversaries of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda, Christmas Eve and Vishwakarma Puja are celebrated with usual devotion and grandeur. Tribal devotees, students and teachers from our 66 feeder schools join the Annual Birthday Celebration of Sri Ramakrishna every year in large numbers when a decorated chariot is taken out in the streets of Cherrapunjee in a colourful procession followed by distribution of midday Prasad, lectures, discourses, Khasi Dance, etc. to mark the event.
