Belur Math is a monastery devoted to Sri Ramakrishna. Formerly, the monastery was known as the Baranagar Math as it was sited at a place called Baranagar. However, in 1899, the monastery was shifted to Belur by Swami Vivekanada, a disciple of Sri Ramakrishna. Belur Math is located just by the side of River Hooghly. Tourists mainly gather at the site to view the architectural style of this Hindu Monastery.

"Beautiful place, boating facility"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted Oct 2, 2014
One of the best places to visit in Kolkata. One must visit this place. The place is more beautified due to the presence of river Hooghly. Boating facilities available from Belur Math to Dakshineshwar.

"A symbol of Unity in Diversity"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted Aug 2, 2014
It is the Head Quarter of Ramakrishna mission on the banks of river Hooghly, founded by Swami Vivekananda in 1897. Its architecture is that of a temple, a church or a mosque, if we view it through different corners, which highlights the principle of ' Unity in Diversity' in India. Along the mutt, there is also a museum. The entire area is calm and quiet and this Ashram stands as a shelter for those who approach for peace and mental solace.
