This is The place that made Rishikesh what it is today, on the banks of Ma Ganga a historic real ashram with Greta library. Many Swami and Sadwini's have come to find spiritual enlightenment here and felt inspired to write about their insights.

Nice place to visit or stay. I went there for an hour. They have two temples inside the ashram and rooms to stay as well. Their library has good books to read.

This is one of the oldest Ashram along the bank of the Ganga, close to Ram Jhula (earlier known as Sivanand Jhula). The ashram was built by H H Sivanand Saraswati. It is a well maintained spiritual place.

Swami Sivanad established this ashram. This ashram is worth visiting if you are searching for understanding of Hindu religion.

Located near the Ramjhula in Rishikesh, this famous ashram is hub of spiritual and religious activity. You can even stay here by booking well in advance. The place is very nice and you can join bhajans. There is Aarti in the evening as well. Good place if you are looking for spiritual atmosphere.
