Belur Math Shrine, Kolkata Reviews

  • Love the place! Especially on a breezy day the place is heaven! But it's really popular and there is always a lot of people! But it's really good if you can go during dawn when there is less people! Amazing views and a very religious ambience!

  • One of the peaceful place to visit .....Full of peace, fresh air, beautiful surroundings, greenery everywhere....The place beautifully makes you feel peaceful as well as relaxed. I always wonder whenever visit here that how much a pure soul makes an impact towards generations of generation.... It is a good place for all generations.... One of the best travelling experience in Kolkata...

  • A spiritual place, related to swami Vivekananda and his life longs works. A little museum is included to have a better understanding about Ramakrishna mission and also a bunch of temples situated there. A good place to visit on Kolkata trip.

  • A place filled with tranquility.. Just go there, spend an hour in the prayer room, u will feel light , completely unstressed, and of course a positive spiritual vibe. But so many restrictions are there, like u can't take pictures inside the temple, u have to put ur mobile in silent mode, u can't sit wherever you want etc..

  • 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.
