  • Fantastic place where one can have peace of mind special for working class. Visitors are requested to visit specially on Saturday where one can get special Bog which is only served on Saturday timing from 10-11am Good place, neat and clean and is also well connected with road and train too. Enough of parking space for the one coming with their own vehicle. There also special buses coming from different places too.

  • An extremely serene and peaceful place of worship located adjacent to the Hoogly river in Belur. Here, you can sit inside the main temple and meditate for hours. There is also a museum located near the entrance where you can learn about the lives of Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna and other distinguished personalities. There is also a free shoe deposit counter where you are required to keep your shoes before entering the temple premises. You can also visit the showroom which contains various spiritual books in multiple languages. The prices are also nominal. Do not miss the room of Swami Vivekananda, located just opposite to the main temple. Happy travelling.😊
