Vivekananda House, with its circular facade, facing the Marina promenade, is a Chennai landmark: in 1897, Swami Vivekananda stayed here for nine days after his return from the tour of the West. Thereafter the Ramakrishna Math functioned here from 1897 to 1906. Now, the monument houses a permanent exhibition on Indian Culture and Swami Vivekananda’s Life. Interestingly, the building, built in 1842, was used for a few decades by British businessmen to store ice brought from North America before changing hands.
