History : Ramakrishna Math, Mekhliganj is a branch centre of Ramakrishna Math, Belur Math. It is situated in a remote place near Bangladesh border and is surrounded by small villages with scenic beauty. This Ashrama was started way back in 1957, in a very humble way from a thatched room in a low land by a disciple of Swami Virajanandaji Maharaj, who later took sannyasa from outside of our order. The ashrama was handed over to Belur Math in the year 2006, which was then a sub-centre of our Cooch Behar centre. Later in 2015 the Mekhliganj centre was made a branch centre of Belur Math.
