 The gate has been erected in such a way that anybody, standing at the gate can have a sight of the temple with Sri Ramakrishna Deva sitting and as if welcoming the visitors. A 16 feet 4 inches wide passage with R.C.C. foundation joins the main gate with the temple.

The remarks of the visitors and local public that such a gate is not visible in any institution other than Ramakrishna Math & Mission at least in North Bengal is not an exaggeration.
