  • Belur math is a nice place to visit.It is situated on the bank of river Ganges .One may astch belongings of swamiji here and the room where swamiji lived his last days. 
  • It is a very big temple and is quite different from the other very ornate temples, with Golden things and various figures of gods. It is a simple and austere Temple, and where you can see the devotion of the faithful when it is the time of prayer. Admission is free, to go up to the temple there to kick off your shoes, but you can leave them at the foot of the staircase. While puts by all public photos can't, people are everywhere with the cameras and mobile phones. Not is if it was because we were very blanquitos, because it is a place of worship or something not very touristic, but while it is normal that in India they look blatantly European or American tourists, it is visit was mainly characterized by the constant surveillance of the local people. It has a very beautiful beams to the river and a pier. I believe that the visit is very recommendable.

  • Built by Swami Vivekananda, an Indian monk and disciple of Sri Sri Ramkrishna Dev of Dakshineswar, Belur Math is a peaceful and tranquil place on the west bank of the holy river Ganga(Hooghly). The famous Dakshineswar Kali Temple is situated on the other bank. There is a bridge across the river connecting the two holy places. The prayer room is a serene and quiet place where people find their peace of mind. Belur Math celebrates Durga Puja every year and their special attraction is "Kumari Puja", where an 8 year old maiden is worshipped every year.
