I visited Berul Math Shrine with family and enjoyed the visit. Though temple was closing in the evening but I still enjoyed the River view of sunset and fabulous gardens. Most important thing for me was it's cleanliness, it was so clean that you could roam around without shoes.

I honestly wasn't expecting it to be so serene and peaceful despite all the people there. The sight of the Ganges right beside the shrines is something to behold. Definitely visit.

Beautiful, divine and peaceful place dedicated to Ramakrishna Parmahansa, Sharada devi and Swami Vivekananda. The Ganges flowing in the back is serene. Well planned facilities and well maintained grounds. Must see in Kolkata.
