Antpur Math


Antpur Math was started in Hooghly in 1965 and affiliated in 1986. The centre is situated in the birthplace of Swami Premananda, one of the foremost disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. At this place, young disciples of Sri Ramakrishna under the leadership of Swami Vivekananda took the vow of renunciation. This led to the formation of the Ramakrishna Math.

The place is now preserved as Dhuni Mandap. The bass panel adorning the wall of the Mandap shows the nine disciples taking vow sitting around a blazing fire and spending the major part of night meditating. Narendranath is shown delivering an inspiring speech on the life of Jesus Christ.
