Ramakrishna Mutt temple

The Ramakrishna Mutt is very much part of the Madras landscape since the late 19th century. It lends its name to the arterial road from Mylapore to Adyar. The new temple built a few years ago adds tot he skyline of the city. The Universal temple synthesizes the architectural elements of Hindu, Buddhist, Jain temples. Inspiration has also been drawn from Cathedrals and Moghul gardens.
