Vivekananda House - Review

A Chennai attraction dedicated to the Indian Hindu monk, Swami Vivekananda, the Vivekananda House, holds high significance given its crucial role in the Ramakrishna Movement in South India. It is one of the most important attractions in Chennai, given the fact the Swami Vivekananda stayed here for 9 days during the movement, in the year 1897. Today what you get to see here is an interesting collection of Swamiji’s Life. This is a permanent collection along with some pieces hinting at the Indian culture too.

Vivekananda House, Chennai Reviews

  • Everyone should know the greatness of Vivekananda. While going to Marina I visited Vivekananda house.This is such a fantastic place . please don't miss it. You will know everything about Vivekananda in this house. Two short films are worthy watching.

  • Serene place. Has everything you would need to know about Swami Vivekananda's life. Lots of interactive elements like video screening of his speech at the Parliament of Religion. Also a depiction of Vivekananda himself talking to us was made. A medidation room is the cherry on the cake. You will not regret visiting this place.

  • The maintenance of this place is very will get see very rare and old pictures of Swami Vivekananda. There is also a 2D short Movie and 3D movie facilities available which is included in the entrance ticket that cost only 20 rupees. If you are looking for peace then visit this place. The beach is also in a walking distance.

  • Historic space sadly maintained.... The new building next to the heritage property is prosaic, an eyesore and a gross violation of the development norms in relation to coastal regulations (CZM). Moreover the tampering of the rarest and most unique statue depicting Swami Vivekananda as a Sanyasi (put up during the centenary celebrations around 1962-63) by Ramakrishna mission bin Chennai is unpardonable and deserves to be condemned. The statue has lost its heritage value unfortunately and it looks like the handiwork of a bunch of idiots. Time they restore the heritage value of the whole monument complex!

  • Mind Blowing place near the Marina Beach. If you are looking for a great afternoon with Chennai then must visit here. Fully traditional and pleasant.
