On the 10th of February 2013, Their Lordships Sri Sri Gaura Nitai were installed in a new CPD preaching center: The Sri Sri Panca Tattva Temple in Fond Du Sac. On the way to Vale from the village of Fond Du Sac, around 150 metres before the first roundabout is a lane (near the house of Bhakta Sujeewon) that turns to the right. The preaching centre is situated around 200 metres down this lane.

The opening ceremony of the centre was graced by the presence of HH Jayadvaita Swami,HH Bhakti Caitanya Swami, HH Bhaktivinoda Swami, His Grace Carudeshna prabhu from Ivory Coast, and various local senior devotees. It started at 10 am with ecstatic kirtan by the devotees of Sri Sri Krsna Balaram Mandir and Sri Sri Radha Golokananda Mandir, as well as local Vaishnavas and Vaishnavis. This was followed by abhishek of Sri Sri Gaura Nitai.
After the abhishek, HH Bhakti Caitanya Swami gave a wonderful class, at the end of which, he announced the name of the deities to the crowd of one thousand guests. When he named the deities: "Sri Sri Doyal Nitai Vijaya Gauranga" the devotees cheered with joy, dancing and singing exhuberantly during the Lord's first arti ceremony.
Sumptuous prasadam was served to all. Photos of the event may be viewed here
