About Belur Math

Belur Math is a place of spiritual enlightenment for the visitors. Swami Vivekananda spent the last years of his life in this Math. He told the people that this place would be a vast resource of knowledge, harmony, yoga, and work. Since that day, The Math has been a place for spiritual movement.
