Sri Ramakrishna Math


Ramakrishna Math, located at Nirlanagar is a spiritual centre functioning for the development of cultural, religious and spiritual activities according to the universal principles propounded by Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda. Constructed in 2nd February, 1987, the marble temple of Sri Ramakrishna  stands out as a unique combination of various styles of architecture that includes those imbibed by the Chandellas, Chalukyas and Pallavas of Southern India besides the Mughals and the Jains.

The Garbha Griha which is the innermost chamber of the temple has nine domes, which is a copy similar to the temple dedicated to Shri Ramakrishna at Belur Math. The windows and terraces are a copy of the Rajput style of architecture while the cemented lattice design (Jali) resembles Muslim architecture. The height of main dome is 90 feet from the ground. Inside the Sanctum Sanctorum cut out profiles from photos of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Sri Ma Sarada Devi and Swami Vivekananda have been placed. At the main gate of the temple, the Logo (monogram) of the Ramakrishna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission has been fixed inside huge glass frames right above the door. At the gate of the Natmandir two intricately carved wooden dwarpalas (door keepers) - Jaya and Vijaya, of about three feet height appear guarding the temple.
