Kancher Mandir


"A Glass Temple"

The Kancher Mandir is located within the premises of Sri Sri Ramkrishna Ashram, Baranagar, that manages and maintains the temple. It derives its name from 'Kanch' that means glass; locals also refer to it as 'Sheesha Mandir' or 'Kanch Mandir'. It is founded and established by Swami Satyananda, an ardent follower of the Swami Abhedananda, who was one of the sixteen direct disciples of Ramakrishna Paramahamsa. Set against the backdrop of River Hoogly, the atmosphere here is serene and calm and this is in complete contrast to the usual commotion that is a regular feature in most Indian temples. Following the Paramahamsa teachings, it does not have idols of Hindu Gods, but has a statue of Sarda Devi, wife of Paramhansa. Every year, three birthdays are celebrated in a grand manner by the followers of 'Ramakrishna Mission'; that of Swami Satyananda, Sarda Ma and Ramkrishna Paramhansa. A visit to this temple gives you important insights into the life of Ramkrishna and his ideologies.
