In comparison to other temples in Chennai, this was a great surprise - very clean, very organized. I wish all the other temples were as clean. Foreigners can visit all areas.

Skip the nearby Kapaleeswara Temple and spend the time in the lovely and peaceful grounds here. Do some meditation in the two temple halls, and browse the bookstore for thought provoking works in English

Very peaceful, lovely setting beautiful light beige coloured building with 5 domes. It is a Krishna learning centre. They closed for lunch so unfortunately we could not go inside.

Visited the Ramakrishna temple in Ramakrishna Mutt in Chennai recently. Located at Mylapore in the city centre, this place is a peaceful oasis situated amidst the chaotic traffic of the metro. The serenity of the place touches you as soon as one enters the temple complex. The complex itself is quite vast housing a hospital besides a couple of libraries.... More

Unbelievable to find a place like this in the middle of such a bustling city. One enters and is drawn into the silence. One can sit there without being disturbed. I have not noticed any chairs and it would be very helpful to have easy access to some.. for the elders and disabled

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.

Situated in the heart of Mylapore of Chennai. Very clean, neat, calm premesis. Lots of discourses, bajans Are conducted,. The meditation hall is big and calm. Well maintained greenery, limited car park, and enough toilets are plus points. Must visit in Chennai.
