We had visited Ramkrishna Mutt located in busy Mylapore area during our holidays in Chennai. We had gone in the evening and were leaving after we had visited the bookstore and the old original temple dedicated to Sri Ramkrishna, then someone told us that the main temple was on the other side of the ashram. We were mesmerized to see... More

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.

Locally its called as "Vivekanandar Illam", no one knows this place as Ramakrishna Temple. You have to buy ticket to visit this place, but its very less, 50 bucks. 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

The mutt is located 2 min from the Mylapore tank and is an abode of peace. The old temple is a great place to meditate. The recently constructed universal temple is massive, and is a must go for anyone who loves a peaceful retreat. The temple reverberates with energy during the evening Arthi @ 6.30 PM. The entire area is... More
