a little surprised belur temple was not posted.
background : belur math, located on the banks of river ganga serves as the worldwide headquarters of Ramakrishna Mission, founded by Sri Ramakrishna's chief disciple, Swami Vivekananda.

the temple design incorporates elements of hindu, christian and muslim religious architecture, in line with Ramakrishna's philosophy of universal faith. the design was done by Swami Vigyanananda, another disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, who was a civil engineer before he became a monk. construction was completed in 1938.

Quote:
The main entrance of the temple, has a facade influenced by Buddhist style. The structure which rises over the entrance is modelled on the Hindu temples of South India with their lofty towers. The windows and balconies inside the temple draw upon the Rajput (Hindu) and Mughal (Islamic) style of north India. The central dome is derived from European architecture of the Renaissance period. The ground plan is in the shape of Christian cross.[1][15]

The height of the temple is 112.5 feet (34.3 m) and covers a total area of 32,900 sq ft (3,060 m2). The temple mainly is built of chunar stone and some portion in the front is of cement. The high entrance of the temple is like a South Indian Gopuram and the pillars on both sides represent Buddhistic architectural style. The three umbrella-like domes on the top built in Rajput-Moghul styles give an idea of thatched roofs of the village Kamarpukur.

The circular portion of the entrance is a intermingling of Ajanta style with Hindu architecture and within it, placing the emblem of the Order is representation of beauty and solemnity. Just above seen is a replica of a Shiva lingam. The natmandira, the spacious congregational hall attached to the sanctum, resembles a church. The pillars in a line on its both sides are according to Doric or Greek style and their decorations are according to the Meenakshi Temple at Madurai in Tamil Nadu.

The hanging balconies above the temple nave and the windows show the effect of Moghul architecture. The broad parikrama path for doing circumambulatory rounds on all sides of the garbhamandira (sanctum sanctorum) are built like Buddhist chaityas and Christian Churches. The lattice work statues of Navagraha figures are etched on semi-circular top of outside the temple. The golden kalasha is placed on the top of the temple and has a full-bloomed lotus or Amlaca below. The architecture of the big dome and of the other domes show a shade of Islamic, Rajput and Lingaraj Temple styles. The entrance doors on both east and west of the temple having pillars on both sides are like Rajasthan Chittor kirti-stambha, the victory-pillars. Ganesha and Hanuman images, representing success and power.
although RKMission temples elsewhere have exceeded belur math in size and grandeur, it still serves as the inspiration behind most of them.

It's not a new temple, that's why. It dates from the late 19th century.

Hmm..you're right about the date, but don't worry, I'm not confusing it with Dakshineshwar. They are very different.

Depends on the size, materials etc. Might be a few crore rupees to a few hundred crore rupees...

Still a lot cheaper than your average church. Not just because temples are quite small compared to churches, since they are not meant to be gathering places. Such intricate work would cost a fortune in the developed countries. Here you can hire skilled craftsmen for peanuts.
