It has various sections on Swami Ramakrishna, Ma Sharada Devi, Swami Vivekananda, & other saints. The temple is an epostle of peace, one should sit in tranquility & medidate. Swami Vivekananda's bedroom makes one feel Swamiji's presence even now. The... More

A peaceful and clean place to spend some time worshiping and enjoying the view. Nestled right next to the Hooghly/Ganges River, devotees can freely dip their feet in the river for a truly spiritual experience.

The reminiscent of Shri Ramkrishna and Swami Vivekananda is in the air of Belur Math. The all-religion-Temple gives you the piece of mind. In the evening cool air from Ganges will soothe your heart.

The Belur math is the city/town/place developed by the followers of Swami Paramhans and well developed and maintained by them. A beautiful building where the idol of Swami Paramhans is situated. The math is located on the bank of Hubli (Ganga). One has to travel by Boat to reach there from Daksineshwar Temple. Its a mindblowing experience all together. One... More
