Belur Math Shrine, Kolkata Reviews - Write a Review
Excellent, Superb and nice to view the scenic beauty and flowing of river Ganges by the side of Math. A great place to visit with family and rejuvenate one's mind and soul. The evening prayer is very attractive and will refresh the mind spiritually. Nice ambiance and great atmosphere.
Excellent place for refreshing one's mind and soul spiritually. Superb calm and quiet atmosphere of the whole vicinity will certainly relax one's innerself. Finally the evening prayer will certainly bring a spiritual peace of mind.
One time visit is must. The main highlight for me was the chanting of prayers which give peace and a sense of relaxation. Structure wise the place is ok. Here you wont find any priest asking for money or such. Facilities like lodging,car parking,washroom,cold water and free shoe place is a plus point. Photography is prohibited but no one cares😂
Nice place with beautiful scenery. Lage building having beautiful design made on the temple. But need more light to make sure for visible all the design and also it need to decorate more. VERDICT amazing place but also need to decorate and lighting then it will be the best.
Beautiful place overall with hooghly river nearby.. Temple has a very calm and peaceful environment. Must visit once.
