The tranquil, flowery grounds of the Ramakrishna Math are a world away from the chaos outside. Orange-robed monks glide around and there’s a reverential feel. The Math is a monastic order following the teachings of the 19th-century sage Sri Ramakrishna, who preached the essential unity of all religions. The Universal Temple here is a handsome modern building incorporating architectural elements from several different religions. It’s open to all, to worship, pray or meditate.
