A landmark heritage building, Mahajati Sadan houses a splendid cultural auditorium, which acts as a venue for magic shows, seminars, meetings and music and dance events held across the city. Another attraction is the library that shows exhibits of the freedom fighters of Bengal, along with their clay models on the first floor. You can also find pictures of these great personalities on the walls of the sadan.

The idea of the sadan was conceived by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and the foundation stone was laid by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore in 1939. He called the sadan the "House of the Nation", and recited his popular poem "Banglar Mati, Banglar jal". However, the construction of the building stopped when Netaji suddenly disappeared. After independence, Bidhan Chandra Roy got the building completed.
