The serene headquarter of the Rama Krishna Mission lies nort of kolkata ,across the Hooghly. It was founded by Swami Vivekananda in 1899. the building is delicately designed to appear like achurch,a masjid &a temple from different angles.

This divine place is located just on the banks of the river Ganga. Although a little crowded on the weekends, this place is perfect for meditation and spirituality. Definitely a must visit for anybody coming to Kolkata on a tour.

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.
