The whole place is an architetural marvel. I find it quite similar to the Ramakrishna Temple at Belur Math. Its a great place for meditation and the temple engages in lot of charitable work which is highly commendable. Highly recommend to visit.

I was pleasantly surprised at the way this historic building was maintained and the way the tour (on your own) has been setup. On paying a entrance fee of Rs.10 per person, you can get lost in the life of the two great teachers. The circular meditation room, where Swami Vivekananda stayed for a few days has a beautiful aura.... More

A quite, serene and beautiful temple and meditation hall in the middle of busy city. A place for you to meditate and there is a small book shop with extremely reasonable price for spiritual books.

The Ramakrishna Temple is a peaceful, quiet escape from the busy, crowded maze of streets surrounding it. There's not much to look at or photograph but if you want to empty head and lower your stress levels, it's the perfect place.

Let me start by telling that the Photo on this site is not of Ramakrishna temple but that of Vivekanandha house or the Ice house referred locally. Please refer back to Vivekanandha house for details on that attraction. However the Ramakrishna temple is situated in Mylapore, on the RK Mutt road inside the RK Mutt. This place has a Ramakrishna...

We reached the Mission at around 10.20 am. It was very quiet and peaceful at the mission.A complete contrast to the streets we walked through on the way there. We first visited the temple/prayer hall. It was very peaceful inside. Then we went to meet the founder of the Mission who gave us his blessings and also gave us a... More

ITs a huge complex to walk around and see the crowd this temple attracts. one cant avoid feeling the huge commercial side of this temple. The circle of life was an interesting observation in this temple......
