Sri Ramakrishna Math, Chennai (Madras)

Learn about the art of meditation at Sri Ramakrishna Math, the chief temple of the Ramakrishna Order, a monastic organization for men in Mylapore. Founded by a 19th-century Bengali saint, this complex--whose name means universal temple--offers daily lectures and distributes books, magazines, and audio/video material. Completed in 2000 on the site of the original 1917 shrine, the temple features a mixture of Dravidian, Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, and Islamic architectural styles, and boasts an 18 m (60 ft) tall gateway tower. Enjoy the tranquility of a Mughal-style forecourt with wide lawns, broad walkways, and ornate parapets.

  • A very peaceful place with the required atmosphere for meditation, any person irrespective of caste, creed, colour and gender are welcome. One can find the true meaning of life here. There are other book stalls that will help quench ones thirst for spiritual knowledge. Also the maths' ashram welcome any and everyone to sit and meditate and find the inner soul.
  • This is a very famous historic devotional place of chennai. The location is very much prominent and usually attracts tourists here. There is one big prayer hall. Architecture of the temple building is very good. My complete peace of mind with extreme devotional feelings.
  • One of the most peaceful places in the city, ironically located in a bustling neighborhood. The atmosphere is serene and people from all walks of life are welcome here. The Old temple is located in the same compound, and you might even get to meet a few monks in the campus.
  • The moment I step inside the temple, I can feel the silence and peace though it is just beside the main road. And the best part is that on a large board outside the temple it is written that everyone irrespective of their sects, sex, religion, caste is welcome which I find to be very relevant unlike many other temple in chennai.
