If you visit Belur Math anyday, you may get a spiritual experience. Taking the blessings of Ma Ganga you can see the prayer may help you to feel the love of the Al-Mighty. Please come and enjoy.

This is my favourite place to get rid of the negetive energy. The calmness gives you a very fresh energy. Sitting by Ganga river, having morning worship, taking 'bhog' and evening prayer, all are just awesome.
