Very beautiful and very peaceful place. Loved to be here, sit in the temple and just be quiet for a while. Must see when you have the possibility very close to chennai her most famous temple!

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.

I visit RK Mutt frequently. It is one of the places where u instantly feel the vibrations as soon as you step in the temple. Great place for meditation

There is not much to see here just the fact that this place is really quiet which not much movement and you can actually spend some quality time meditating here and come out all energised!

Vivekanandar house near Chennai Beach is one of the best places in Chennai. The place is very neatly maintained and has a gallery and life history of Vivekananda. Well maintained gallery and superb lighting makes one just stand in front of the information for long. Never miss the Meditation hall where Swami did meditation. The book stall adjacent to the...

I went there with two of my friends without even knowing what exactly a place it was. But it was very peaceful to close your eyes, sit there and meditate or be peaceful for a while. The hall is maintained so silent all the time and even the people are so friendly to talk with.

You could wonder how peaceful this place is, though it is situated in Mylapore, one of the busiest places in Chennai. It is clean. It is beautiful. And most importantly it is divine. For all the peace-seekers, stumbling around Chennai, this is the place you should be in.
