Bhupen Hazarika Samadi Khetra, the memorial of the late Bhupen Hazarika located at Jalukbari, will feature a museum in honour of the legend.
The museum is expected by September 2018.
“The construction of the museum is nearing completion and is expected by September at the earliest,” said Pranay Thakuriya, the caretaker of the memorial.
The memorial spread over four bighas of land, exhibits photos, awards, cinemas and works of Bhupen Hazarika.
The memorial is open from 7:30 am to 10:00 pm daily for public with no entry fee and restriction for anyone.
