Great place to meditate!

What a holistic atmosphere to cleanse our soul, after long hauls of mundane works in life! Never forget to join the bhajans in the evenings!

Temple for all. An abode of peace, where hundreds are always meditating at any given point in time. The centre of religious and spiritual life.

This is located in Mylapore near kapaleeswarar temple. A very good place to meditate. The environment is very peaceful. Bhajans happens in the evenings. This is a must visit place for foreigners and North Indians as they will like it more than South Indians.

The best place to visit in Chennai, according to me. The Place is so peaceful and beautiful that one can sit here all day long. It is close to Kapeeleswara Temple in Mylapore.

Ramakrishna Temple is a quiet and peaceful place. There is a big meditation hall where you can feel the silence and in the hall there is Ramakrishna statue placed for worship. Best time to visit is in the evening.

We had visited Ramkrishna Mutt located in busy Mylapore area during our holidays in Chennai. We had gone in the evening and were leaving after we had visited the bookstore and the old original temple dedicated to Sri Ramkrishna, then someone told us that the main temple was on the other side of the ashram.
