  • This is a nice place for RK followers. Its clean and nice. serene, you can sit and medidate for a while. 
  • The best place to visit in Chennai, according to me. The Place is so peaceful and beautiful that one can sit here all day long. It is close to Kapeeleswara Temple in Mylapore. 
  • 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.

  • We had a heard a lot about this place and decided to visit here. This Math was initiated by Ramakrishna's disciples and is a very good place to meditate.this is 70 years old math.here not only ramakrihna worshipped swamy vivekananda also worshipped.surroundings are very beautiful.very peaceful area.
  • It's a superb and serene holy in the heart of the city. I felt I'm in a different world inside it. I even got a fortune to stay for 3 days here during Youth camp. I experience great level of spirituality and divinity inside the Mylapore Math campus. All the monks are of kind and open minded nature. They helps to resolve all doubts in the spirituality and in life. Evening Arati is very devotional and I experienced a greater level of consciousness when participating in it. I love to go to this place so frequently.
  • 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.
  • Best place to get peace of mind in a crowded area. The monks here are good, Math conducts Sanskrit classes; lot of social activities and spiritual development sessions.
