Started in 1922 and made a branch centre in 2002, it was the dwelling place of Sri Balaram Basu, one of the chief lay disciples of Sri Ramakrishna. The place has been sanctified by the numerous visits of Sri Ramakrishna, his disciples, and Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi. It was here that the Ramakrishna Mission Association was born- Swami Vivekananda held the historic meeting on 1 May 1897 to finalize his plan for founding the Association in the name of his Master.

Shyampukur Bati, sanctified by the stay of Sri Ramakrishna, Holy Mother Sri Sarada Devi and the direct disciples, was taken over by Ramakrishna Math and made a sub-centre of Balaram Mandir branch in November 2010. Sri Ramakrishna stayed at Shyampukur Bati for seventy days before moving to Cossipore garden-house.
