One cannot but help feel spiritually charged after visiting the Ramakrishna Temple in Mylapore. It has the same ambience as the main centre in Kolkata and is a nice place to meditate. The bhajans and aarti are performed very nicely.

Even if you have no idea who Swami Vivekananda was or what the movement entails it is still very much worth stepping into this building (a former Ice House by the way). It's peaceful, serene, quiet, and a step back from all the busy madness outside. Plus it is only ten rupees entrance fee. If you do have a bit... More

Highly spiritual but also very relaxed, you will feel welcome, no matter which religious or cultural background you're coming from.

If your mental peace is disturbed, Ramakrishna's Mutt, Mylapore is the ideal place to be visited. Positive vibrations there will definitely bring energy to you if you do meditation quietly for some twenty minutes. The building itself is a marvel of architectural design and worth seeing.
