A visit to Belur math is must. Ramakrishna math with life of Vivekananda in a well organised museum is worth the visit. The architecture of the temple, the peace inside the temple till it opens, the geometrical garden, the book store and even the shoe racks are esthetically designed. Photography not allowed in many places. Inside the temple, they allow... More

The math premises is well maintained and the prayer hall is huge and spic and span. Photography is not allowed and the river bank adjacent to the mutt makes the location simply superb.

Belur math is well connected from all parts of Kolkata. I took a cab to reach there. The campus is beautiful with lovely buildings and gardens. One must take a lot of time to see the museum which houses a lot of original items used by Sri Ramakrishna and his followers. There is also the main building where one can... More

Must spend a lot of time to completely feel spiritually rejuvenated. Life and work of Swami Vivekananda is very inspiring. Do visit the new Swami Vivekananda museum. Also the campus is very huge and beside hooghly river. You can take a ferry to dakshineswar kali temple from just outside Belur math. Campus is very big and scenic. Feel the inner... More

A divine place, you can feel the divinity in the every walk you make in and around the place although its having many visitors. Must visit if you like the peace. Try taking the route from Kali temple via ferry boat. its a nice experience.

The place is easily accessible, and is a hotspot of Ramkrishna Mission activities. The place is located on the banks of Hoogly river which gives it a scenic advantage. Must visit in Kolkata.
