Ramakrishna mutt is set in the heart of the city at Mylapore and yet is serene and peaceful. The architecture, location, the natural scenic atmosphere and the power of Sri Ramakrishna Maharaj makes this as a must-visit mutt.

An oasis of calm in a crowded busy city. Set amid green gardens, lovely to visit at the end of busy days.

This is a place for any one who is in search of inner peace. You will find answers for your own questions by your heart. Not much religious but, a feeling of satisfaction and enlightenment. Don't go in a hurry. Sit freely and calmly.
