    Beautiful place, the clean calm and spiritual environment is worth exploring. The temple closes at 12 noon and again reopens at 4 pm in normal days. No entry fee. No camera allowed. If you want to have prasad its better if you reach there before 10am and collect coupons.

    A peaceful place. Swami Vivekananda's memories are everywhere. A great museum shows swamiji's life and his used articles. Great experience. Perfect for One day family outing with devotion.

    Note the temple timings before you visit. The museum and the bookstore are excellent. The historical significance of this place is enormous. For anyone with the slightest interest in Swami Vivekananda, this campus is a must-visit.
