RAM KRISHNA MISSION TEMPLES

Swami Vivekananda entered into Samadhi at Belur Math on Friday, July 4, 1902.An untiring worker, this man of genius, energy, heart and vision drank deep into the learn- ing of different languages and imbibing the best from their literature, trying to do good to humanity at large through Seva-dharma and at the sametime spreading a broad- based gospel which knows no intellectual snobbery and religious bigotry Swami Vivekananda immediately caught the attention of the whole of India.

Belur Math

Belur six miles off Calcutta is the headquarters of the Ramakrishna Mission. The Belur Math has a temple of Shri Ramakrishna Paramahansa consecrated on the 14th January 1938 in the presence of about fifty thousand persons. A marble statue representing Shri Ramakrishna was
installed. The temple could be constructed due to the initiative of Swami Akhilananda who was the Head of the Vedanta Society of Providence and the Ramakrishna Vedantic Society of Boston and the magnificent help of one American devotee. The construction of the temple was done at a cost of eight lakhs of rupees by Messrs. Martin and Company of Calcutta.

This grand and lovely edifice with grey chunar stone-facing is a masterpiece of construction and shows a happy welding of different architectural styles prevalent in different parts of India touched with modern techniques. The site is on the bank of the Ganga River. Swami
Vivekananda, a direct disciple of Shri Ramakrishna prepared the elevation of design of the building.Swami Vivekananda, the great disciple of Shri Ramakrishna Paramahansa wanted a temple to be built incorporating the features of temple architectures of different creeds and religions and that is exactly what has been done.
