Amidst lush greenery a miniute or two walk from RK Beach stands the beautiful structure of Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama in light pink that reminded us of the old temples of south India.

The shram comprises of two parts A well stocked library and a prayer hall. Once inside you will be greeted with tranquil prayer hall, with crystal clear marble flooring and soothing lighting. In the center, an idol of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. There were idols of Sharada Maa (Ramakrishna Paramahamsa's spiritual companion) and Vivekananda also.  Then the hall is opened to general public for meditation.

The next course of rituals and worship starts at 8.30 AM and continues for one hour. The last puja for the day is done at 12 PM and the prayer hall gets closed thereafter to reopen at 3.30 PM. The evening prayer and aarti occur at 7 PM and the ambience gets lively with wonderful bhajans (devotional songs). The hall remains open till 9.30 PM. On special days like Ramakrishna Jayanti, Holy Mother Sharada’s birthday, Durga Asthami and Guru Purnima, special puja is offered along with spiritual talks on the significance of that day. Community meal is also organized.

The library which has a rare collection of classic books on subjects like philosophy, history, art and literature in multiple languages like English, Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Sanskrit is the second part of the ashram that is opened for the visitors. It opens at 9.30 AM and closes at 12.30 PM, but to borrow them you need to take membership by paying Rs. 300.
