  • Well maintained temple. Much less dirty than most of the other temples. Easily holds a big numbers of devotees everyday due to very well established security systems. Taking photo inside the temple premises is prohibited. Good systems are available to the devotees for putting their mobile phones, shoes and other accessories into lockers against very nominal amount. Shoes can also be kept at prasad counters at the shopping block. Overall experience has always been great.
  • Such a great experience I can't forget it. Bathing in ganges is a great experience for me. Very clean and peaceful place and also very secured. A library with full of books were attracted me. But now it is very difficult to go belur math for launch port preparing. Then you have to go with no. 56 bus. but only some bus run in that route. It's a big problem.
  • Went yesterday to learn something really important. If you're a devotee, avoid visiting this place in Summers else your bare feet will certainly burn as the place gets really hot in summer. But be sure it'd be an experience of a lifetime!
  • For Religious devotees. Well maintain and under high security. Very beautiful temple and by visiting this temple we can Feel our soul is clean.
  • One of the most famous religious place in West Bengal. Nice environment. & Well maintained as well. Though it's a bit crowded. Great place to visit.
