    Belur Math is one of the most significant places because of its fascinating history, stunning architecture, and status as a sanctuary of the highest spiritual significance.

    Why to visit this place

    The temple is renowned for its unusual design, which combines Hindu, Christian, and Islamic symbols as a representation of the harmony of all world religions.
    The temple, which was established by Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna Paramahansa's foremost follower, is the centre of the Ramakrishna Movement. A museum and a number of other educational institutes with ties to the temple are also housed there.
    A well-kept museum with priceless artefacts from the Ramakrishna Math and Mission's past is another highlight of this popular tourist destination close to Kolkata.
    The Buddhist designs of the Sanchi Stupa and the entrance to the Ajanta Caves have a significant effect on the temple's main entryway. The central dome is influenced by European architecture, while the windows and balconies are examples of Rajput and Mughal architectural designs.
    The enormous campus next to the Belur Math is home to a number of educational institutions connected to the Ramakrishna Mission, including a degree college and a polytechnic.
