I reside in Rishikesh at Swarg Ashram at Ganga Kutir. It's really cost-effective and very comfortable and visiting this place with my family is our routine. I remember visiting this place since I was very young. This place is well-protected by the small hills and gushing rivers nearby and is a good place for relaxing and meditating. I would recommend...

My highlight in this area is this little juice bar with the most amazing, HUGE fruit salad. There are many shops which sell everything from clothes to books and the obligatory grocery shops... but the vibe is different then Laxman Jhula - i liked it there more. But anyway, it´s nice to walk from one side to the other side... More

First things first...this is a name of the area and not a particular 'ashram' per say! Like everyone else, I also went with an expectation to be an ashram but it there are many small cottages in this areas which are used by the Yogis for their meditation and day to day activities. That said, I found this area quite... More

Swarg Ashram is located close to popular Ram Jhula bridge in Rishikesh.Check out the pic which I took from outside while on my way to Ram Jhula. Nice ashram - one of the many in Rishikesh.

Parmarth Niketan Ashram is definitely worth a visit if for nothing else than the beautiful 5pm ceremony on the banks of the Ganga (Ganges). I had difficulty finding it on TripAdvisor because of the confusing map links, taking me near the Ram Jhula Bridge instead of 250-300 meters south to Parmarth Niketan. From Ram Jhula Bridge, head south and keep... More

Other side of River Ganga (Left Bank). Can be reached here by four wheeler via Chilla Barrage. Or by walking over Ram Jhula or by steamer across (every TEN minutes) the banks. Gita Bhawan , Parmarth Niketan , Vanprastha Ashram many other other ashrams are there.
