Dedicated to Swami Vivekananda, this monument is also known as Ice House. It is believed that in the year 1900, the great soul stayed in this house for six weeks. Established in 1877, this two-storey building is a Victorian architectural marvel with great designs of sunburst and gabled roof.

Vivekananda’ s bedroom has now become a room for meditation. Here, you can find the dining table (as was located in his time) next to the fireplace. Up next is the kitchen where Vivekananda often cooked food and the garden where he loved to play with kids. The followers of Swam Vivekananda often come here to breathe through the physical reminders of his life and rekindle the principles.
