Layout of the Ramakrishna Math

Established in 1987, the white structure of the new monastery is a combination of Hindu and Islamic architectural features. It also represents adapted designs from the Indian dynasties of the time.

In addition to red-cemented significant relics from Hindu mythology, the current temple of the Ramakrishna Math hosts an elegant marble-finished entryway. Numerous mythical creatures and characters in stone adorn the parallels of the entrance.

The sanctum sanctorum of the temple, roofed with nine white domes is secured with an ornately carved gate. However, this part of the temple emits a Rajasthani aura of architecture alongside the typical Mughal style. The prayer hall here hones an elaborately decorated white and brown floor, while siting a splendid chandelier with over 250 lights. 

Ramakrishna Math History

With the spread of the essence of Sri Ramakrishna by Swami Vivekananda in 1857, this spiritual blanket took over the nation. First beginning with the North, physical temples regarding this message were built across India.

Oscillating talks between Swami Vivekananda and the Nawabs ruling Lucknow during 1888 and 1889 led to the much later establishment of the first Ramakrishna Mission Sevashram in 1925. The present temple is the new version which was constructed close to the older holy site.
