The math has it's own natural beauty. I recommend everyone that they should go there and relax a little bit.

Nice temple and very quite, peaceful. My opinion, better than Victoria memorial park for chilling out. It was a bit difficult to visit from Kolkata centre..but worth it. Also boat riding was nice. Only 4 Rupees each person.

By the river Ganges, this is a wide-spread peaceful temple area, setup by Swamiji Vivekananda, in name of Guru Ramakishna Dev & mata Sarada devi. Evening arati, Durgapuja etc.are special attractions, apart from regular religious holy-feel.

A peaceful and clean place to spend some time worshiping and enjoying the view. Nestled right next to the Hooghly/Ganges River, devotees can freely dip their feet in the river for a truly spiritual experience.

The reminiscent of Shri Ramkrishna and Swami Vivekananda is in the air of Belur Math. The all-religion-Temple gives you the piece of mind. In the evening cool air from Ganges will soothe your heart.
