The main design of the Belur Math temple was done by Swami Vivekananda but the architecture was concluded by Swami Vijnanananda who was a disciple over here. As the temple is treated as the heart and soul of the Mission, the architecture designs of the Math are an interesting fusion of Islamic, Hindu and Christian culture to signify the concept of unity in diversity. The entrance is inclined by the Buddhist style of art but the rising structure is influenced by the Southern India’s Hindu temples.
To the devotees, Belur Math Kolkata is a sacred place for pilgrimage, but for us it was an enchanting place seeped in history having national importance. I took many photographs of this place and realized that this tour of Kolkata was going to have an important effect on our heart and soul. The next place in the row is the Dakshineswar Kali Temple Kolkata, which we were eagerly waiting to visit.
