Ramakrishna Temple is a quiet and peaceful place. There is a big meditation hall where you can feel the silence and in the hall there is Ramakrishna statue placed for worship. Best time to visit is in the evening.

Ramakrishna and the universal of religions....not only a gem of building but also a very special spiritual atmosphere, an oasis of peace in the noisy city. I recommend this place for people interested in meditation.

A pictorial museum and visual representation of life of Swami Vivekananda. One light and sound show, one 3D show and yoga room will feel your heart and mind with peace. When... More
