Ramakrishna Mission

Hindu Temple

in Old Delhi (Shahjahanabad)

Amid the chaos of Paharganj, the temple that gives the metro station here its name is a wonderfully calming escape, with a landscaped garden leading to a simple meditation hall. The morning and evening aarti (auspicious lighting of lamps or candles), at 5am and sunset, are atmospheric times to visit. At other times, people simply meditate in peace.
