Vivekananda House


Vivekananda House, also known as Ice House, is a shrine and target of pilgrimage for the devotees of Swami Vivekananda. It is in this house that Swami Vivekananda stayed in 1897. During his nine day stay, he shook India’s national consciousness through his fiery lectures at Chennai. Built in 1842, the two-story house is a masterpiece of Victorian architecture with its characteristic designs of sunburst and gabled roof. The bedroom where Vivekananda stayed, lived and slept is now a safe haven for meditation. One can respectfully see the table at which he dined, placed downstairs near the fireplace. Devotees can stroll through the kitchen where he cooked his simple food, the parlor where he spoke and the garden where he frequently played with the children. These physical reminders of the life of Swami Vivekananda revive the great principles for which he stood all his life. Vivekananda House now houses a permanent exhibition on Indian culture and Swami Vivekananda’s life, as well as a meditation room, and is a source of inspiration to thousands of people who visit it every year.
