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.

India has made an incalculable contribution to the spirituality of the world. Ramakrishna was the teacher of Swami Vivekananda, who essentially woke up the western world to the depth of Indian spirituality. Make the time to visit Ramakrishna Math and Vivekananda House, and try to get a glimpse of the finest thought India has contributed to the world.
