History

In 1916 Swami Brahmananda and Swami Premananda visited Dhaka. On 13 February 1916, Swami Brahamananda and Swami Permananda laid the foundation of Ramakrishna Math and Ramakrishna Mission respectively. After 8 months, on 24 October the first Governor of the East Bengal, Lord Carmichael inaugurated the opening ceremony of the medical service center. In March of this year, Dhaka Ramakrishna Mission received the affiliation of the Headquarters at Belur.[citation needed]

The Ramakrishna Mission Authority of Belur appointed the local executive committee to start renovation work as, after 85 years of use, the temple had become dilapidated. The main construction work began in 2000. In 2015, Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi visited a temple.
