  • The temple is very liked, he recalled some fairy palace. The temple is not similar to other temples in Chennai, which of course beautiful, but a little monotonous. This temple dedicated to the gods Krishna and Rama, is decorated with pink marble and very beautiful stone carvings.

  • This is worth for devotees of Sri Ramkrishna. People can spend hours in the peaceful environment. A perfect place for meditation and your prayer. 
  • This is a unique place where we can learn to become a complete human being. In today's education we are concerned about ranks and jobs only. It is essential but also to check about ourselves. Even in schools or at homes also nobody has knowledge to clear any doubt. Also, everybody says that we shouldn't do this or that. But nobody knows what is right and wrong. In these circumstances it is a ray of light to understand small things which gives lot of knowledge and self confidence. No need to spend thousands of rupees for our traditional skills. Just try to go and get some knowledge.
  • Best place to visit. More Moral Values inside. New persons visiting here will have interest to bring his relatives & friends to this place. Will have the feeling of being with Swami Vivekananda during the meditation in his room. Life time Excellent Feeling.
  • Confused? Overexcited? Stressed out? Best place to relax and calm yourself. Amazing garden and the fragrance, does its magic.
  • Spiritual uplifting
