Belur Math Shrine, Kolkata Reviews

  • It's a matt as you all know but very well maintained unlike other places. There is lot to see but we couldn't as we visited at wrong time. The main hall is very big and calm. So many visitors and yet so quiet will surely amaze you. They do offer food for which you will have to buy coupons. Visiting this place in the morning is recommended.

  • It is a very beautiful place. Full of peace, fresh air, beautiful surroundings, greenery everywhere. Though it is a religious place still it has a huge garden best for evening walk. Best thing about it. It is a good place for all generations. And it is important to note that evening prayers done there is magnificent.

  • Famous place in West Bengal , rather in India. Even our respected PM comes here. I've visited many places including various temples but I can assure you that you cannot find more peace other than this place. Once you come here, you will easily forget all your sorrows ,your problems. Well maintained area.

  • Wow. I love the place means I was really amazed by the natural and spiritual beauty of this place. The place is so quite and greeny. Everywhere is so clean. The design of the building and prayer halls are also so good. It has an area for seating near the river and it has literally blown my mind away.

  • The memories of great saints are here. Do you want a change of air? If yes then you must visit this place. The lush green gardens abounds in this place.
