Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Memorial, Vadodara was inaugurated on the auspicious day of Shri Ramnavami on 18 April, 2005. Previously, a private centre had been initiated in Vadodara with the title ‘Ramakrishna Vivekananda Kendra’ on 4 September, 1969 by Advocate Shri Gordhanbhai Patel under the guidance of Revered Swami Atmasthanandaji Maharaj. The activities of Kendra were functioning under the guidance of Shri Ramakrishna Ashrama, Rajkot. During this period, the Kendra bought land in 2003 at Kalali town. Many devotees heartily contributed right from the beginning of Kendra to build the foundation of Ramakrishna Mission and are still continuing their contribution. Many Sannyasins of Ramakrishna Order visited Vadodara and gave spiritual teachings of Sri Ramakrishna, Sri Ma Sarada and Swami Vivekananda to the devotees.
