This is an extremely peaceful place to be in. I did not stay here, but I frequented it and visited the Ganga Aarti they have here... It has a calming effect on your senses. Just sit on the stairs near the shore of Ganga river and let this beautiful spiritual feeling take over your body and your mind!

This Ashram has been built by the Birla's.The temple inside the Swarg Ashram has very beautiful Vishnu Lakshmi idols that make the whole place very divine and spiritual. The complex also has an accredited shop for semi-precious stones and Rudraksh. The authenticity of the stones is shown though a machine making it reliable outlet. I myself purchased a sphatik bracelet... More

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.
