Lonely Planet review

The centrepiece of the Ramakrishna Mission is the huge 1938 Ramakrishna Mandir which somehow manages to look like a cathedral, Indian palace and Istanbul's Aya Sofya all at the same time. That's deliberate and perfectly in keeping with the message of 19th-century Indian sage Ramakrishna Paramahamsa who preached the unity of all religions.
