A calming peaceful temple to visit. There were books for sale to help with a better understanding of the Krishna religion. Enjoyed our visit very much.

An oasis of calm in a crowded busy city. Set amid green gardens, lovely to visit at the end of busy days.

This is a place for any one who is in search of inner peace. You will find answers for your own questions by your heart. Not much religious but, a feeling of satisfaction and enlightenment. Don't go in a hurry. Sit freely and calmly.

Right in the middle of the city, in the middle of Mylapore. Go there for peace. If you are looking for a regular temple with a God / Goddess statute, you will be disappointed. You will see Ramakrishna Paramahansa's statue along with Swamiji's and Ma Sharada's. Go in the evening during Bhajan and arati time.

Like T Nagar and Puruswalkam, Mylapore is a bustling business and commercial hub in the midst of one of the oldest residential areas of erstwhile Madras. Amidst the high decibels of traffic and jostling crowds, the Ramakrishna Mission's Temple presents an oasis of calm and peace. Once you step behind the walls of the sprawling campus, one can not but... More

In the hussle and buzzle of city life when we step into the Math we are transformed into a totally different world of peace and calm . Apart from the marble idol of Sri Sri Ramakrishna... More
