    The ashram stay is free of cost. There is no fixed tariff and you can donate according to your will before leaving the place. Plus there are two meals a day and afternoon/morning tea that is provided for free. The people are very good and hospitable too.

    The ashram is very peaceful and right on the bank of the Ganges. Its clean, silent and the great views of the mountain with the Ganga river flowing alongside make for a very nice retreat if you are looking for a quiet place in the town.

    Wish you a happy trip…

  3. I will be travelling to Rishikesh late August. Do I need to make a reservation for this ashram?

  4. Hello David,

    Though it is not mandatory to make a reservation for the ashram stay but I would strongly suggest you to do so, so as to avoid any last minute hassles.

    The number of rooms depends on your choice and availability of rooms...
