Ramakrishna math is a very spiritual and quite place in Chennai, went with my co-brother as he is a devotee of Sri Rmakrishna and Vivekananda. if you would like to experience the spirituality you may go, very high traffic area hence you need to plan your trip well.

I have been to this place several times when in Chennai. I used to find it very peaceful sitting amongst the people in search of peace and to add to its positives there is a book store selling religious books at quite cheap price.
