Silence is golden proved in his place. Every complex inside this math has something to say. You need to see to believe. Daily Annadhanam does not see tic and poor all happens in same place. Math is in the banks of river Ganga and the ferocious river is also quite beside this math.

Well, this place was originally established by Swami Vivekananda with the soul purpose of preaching Sri Ramakrishna Deva's universal teachings. But now it has become more of a tourist spot. The evening Aratrika ritual in the main temple here remains solemn as ever just like Swami Vivekananda's ever inspiring writings.

The shrine is on the river Ganga on the Howrah district side. The architecture looks somewhat Russian church pattern. The river ghat (river bank) is beautiful. Best time to visit is on a sunday morning. It must be followed by a ferry across the river to Dakshineswar.

Beside of Hooghly river, The Belur Math is a good place to visit and learn about Swami Vivekananda & Shri Shri Ramakrishnadev. You can purchase valuable books on meditation, devotion etc at their bookstall. Yes, CAMERA IS NOT ALLOWED ;)
