Create an itinerary including Sri Ramakrishna Math
Learn about the art of meditation at Sri Ramakrishna Math, the chief temple of the Ramakrishna Order, a monastic organization for men in Mylapore. Founded by a 19th-century Bengali saint, this complex--whose name means universal temple--offers daily lectures and distributes books, magazines, and audio/video material. Completed in 2000 on the site of the original 1917 shrine, the temple features a mixture of Dravidian, Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, and Islamic architectural styles, and boasts an 18 m (60 ft) tall gateway tower. Enjoy the tranquility of a Mughal-style forecourt with wide lawns, broad walkways, and ornate parapets.

  • I loved a very tranquil experience in this temple. The grounds were immaculate and found the whole experience an oasis of calm in the hustle and bustle of the city.

  • Great place to know a bit about Hindu philosophy and the collection of books in the library is very good.

  • One of the best ever places in Chennai to visit in order to experience tranquil and peace at both the old and new Ramakrishna Mutt temple premises. There is a book store attached to both these temples with numerous spiritual books and other spiritual paraphernalia for sale. You can also make donations to Ramakrishna Mission at these stores through various modes of payment.
  • This book store belongs to Sri Ramakrishna Madam which located in Mylapore. Old book store having lot of devotional collections of books and audios,etc.. Renovated few years back, AC Hall with pin drop silence. Book Store one side and Temple, hospital the other side.
