Excellent Place . I liked the ambience. Remembered the sage Sri Rama Krishna Paramahamsa ; Swami Vivekananda and Holy Mother Sarada Devi. In fact for any spiritually inclined person, this is a place which must be in the list for a visit.

It is a place for the faithfull. One can sit quitely and pray or walk around and enjoy the surroundings. Warning for elderly---cars are not allowed inside. The walk to the temple is quite long.

Fabulous shrine & a must visit temple near to Kolkata..only the drawback is that the place is always over crowded & roads doesnt have proper arrow or marking & if the driver doesnt know the roads properly then maybe you have to go for a long drive...

A must visit for all those planning trips to kolkata. Do try and visit around 5pm for evening arti..The chanting of sanskrit sholkas is divine. About 30 mins of heaven on earth.

The headquarters of Ramakrishna Mission, it is an architectural wonder. Beautifully crafted and with an environment that's sublime, it is a must go place on a lazy afternoon. The temple stands exemplary for it's religious integration. You cannot remain a buddhist or a hindu or a christain once you enter the gates. The boat ride to the Math is equally... More

A must visit if you are in Kolkata. A neat well maintained place Do avoid weekends as it gets really crowded. From belur math you can take boat to Dakhineshwar temple. The temple, the ganges river and the cool breeze will create an essence of spiritual tranquility.
