Belur Math in West Bengal

Belur Math Belur Math, established by Swami Vivekananda is located on the banks of the River Ganges in Kolkata. The temple exhibits a fine style of architecture that combines the elements from a church, a mosque and a temple. Swami Vivekananda, who was a religious reformer, was among the first disciples of Ramakrishna Paramahansa to set this up as the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission and Math. The Ramakrishna Mission has been set up all over the world, and Belur Math is their headquarters. Belur Math was founded on the basis of a need for a permanent monastic base.

Belur Math comprises a temple of Ramakrishna Paramahansa, which is separated by a transparent glass cover. There is an Old Temple where Ramakrishna Paramahansa is regularly worshipped. The temple of Ramakrishna took a period of 4 years to be built and was funded by an American disciple of Swami Vivekananda named Ms. Hellen Rubel. Besides this there is Swami Vivekananda's room located adjacent to the old temple, a temple dedicated to Holy Mother, Sarada Devi, the two storied temple of Swami Vivekananda, the "Samadhi Peetha", the temple of Swami Brahmananda and the Ramakrishna Museum. These buildings add to the aura and divinity of the place. The temple of Sarada Devi has been made in the place where she was cremated. Swami Vivekananda`s temple looks magnificent in size and splendour, and has been built on his crematory ground. The Samadhi Peetha contains the `samadhi` of the seven foremost disciples of Sri Ramakrishna Paramahansa. The Museum, on the other hand, supplies to the inquisitive needs of people who want to know about Ramakrishna and his teachings. There are several articles here that contain the preachings of this Indian saint.

The Math is an ideal place for reflection and spiritual regeneration. Studies of Vedanta form the primary concern among the monks. Vivekananda's efforts of making Vedanta popular universally are still on and universities around the world have also got interested in the Math for further knowledge and information. The monks of Belur Math lead a disciplined life adept in the art of "Right Living & Right Action", which has been made obsolete by the modern day. Therefore, the Belur Math is an ideal destination for inner well-being and peace.
