It is beautiful at poet's birthplace even now and it is a joyful experience to visit homestead, which is very well taken care of by poet’s relatives who live here. Part of this spacious home is sacred to the memory of the poet. The Museum is exhibiting authentic furniture, facsimiles of manuscripts of the poet, the selections of his creative works and etc.
