  • If you are in search of a pristine place with calmness surrounding you. Belur math is the place. The gangs ghat and the beautiful lawns near it makes the place breathtakingly awesome. Their is a big museum dedicated to Sri Ramakrishna paramhans and his works, his dedicated bhakt Swami Vivekananda and other monks of the order. The central chamber where people meditate in front of the idol of Sri Ramakrishna is a place to be revered.

  • I am student of Ramkrishna Mission, Tamluk. So as it is the main centre of Ramkrishna Math & Mission . Very peaceful, a perfect one for meditation. Pranam Thakur, Maa, Swamiji.
  • This is the place for you if you wish to just sit and relax, mentally. People are chanting mantras all around, some are worshipping their idols, but I just sat in the shade and enjoyed the natural breeze and quietness. People from all background are always visiting, whether rich or poor. A must visit during the evening if you are touring Kolkata, and require a break from the stressful city life.
