The Ramakrishna Mission Vidyapith, Purulia, an oasis in the heart of the dry rugged land of Purulia, is an educational institute par excellence, a completely residential school imparting man-making and character building education as envisaged by Swami Vivekananda. Vidyapith stands on the Barakar Road in the village Bongabari covering an area of approx 75 acres.
Entering through the main gate, we have a clear view of the Marble image of Sri Ramakrishna inside the garbhagriha of the temple. But first, there is the Vidyapith Museum on the left at a distance. To the right is a life size portrait of Swami Vivekananda. Further ahead lay the Devayan or the central office and the Sabhagriha or auditorium to the left and the guest houses to the right.
