Yogapith temple on Wikipedia's main page on Radhastami

On the day of Radhastami, September 2, 2014 (coinciding this year with the
appearance day of Bhaktivinoda Thakur by the solar calendar), Wikipedia posted
a photograph of the Yogapith temple built by Bhaktivinoda as a “Picture of the
Day” feature on its Main page:

The photograph had earlier been chosen by the Wikipedia community as a featured
picture, or one of the few "finest images” that Wikipedia has.

The blurb by the image reads:

The Yogapith temple in Mayapur, West Bengal, India, is a shrine constructed at
the birth site of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1486–1533). It was erected in the 1880s
by Bhaktivinoda Thakur (1838–1914), a leading Gaudiya Vaisnava reformer and
teacher, when, after much research, he rediscovered Chaitanya's original
birthplace. Chaitanya founded Gaudiya Vaisnavism, better known in the West by
its branch, the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, or the Hare
Krishna movement.
