Parmarth a long time ago seemed to be a nice and genuine space of spirituality, now the donations are mandatory and have incrwased from Rs 200 to Rs 1000 a night clearly showing an increasing trend of exploiting spirituality for money. There are much more better and genuine ashrams or just hotels that can be found to be much cheaper.

Best Ganga aarti that I've seen across Haridwar & Rishikesh. Light music before and after music puts you in trance. They provide aarti sets as well to you so you can perform aarti alongwith others. Ashram is nice inside with bio toilet. I didn't stay here but seems to be good place.

An overall amazing experience.. Teachers are extremely knowledgable on their subjects.. staff is helpful at the ashram, except a few. Ganga aarti is something that will certainly stay with you for ever...a truly divine experience! Nothing can describe it in words...Amenities are basic, as it is an Ashram... so if you are looking for luxury and room services, this is... More

I was recommended this ashram by a friend and I decided to stay here during my visit to Rishikesh. I booked this place, two weeks in advance, but when I got there, they didn't have a room for me. I had to sift through a thick list of names to find mine, and when I did, they said they did... More

I attended the evening aarti at the ashram around 6. Reach the ashram half an hour before and take a seat near the stairs from where you can clearly watch the aarti. A small havan preceded the aarti. Several disciples at the ashram chant the hymns in chorus. It is a truly enchanting experience. The aarti takes about two hours.... More

A good option to see and participate in Ganga Aarti every evening. You are sitting quite close to the prayer and havan kund so the experience is more powerful than anywhere else. In Haridwar you watch it from the other bank where it is performed. Whereas here you witness the aarti in front of you and actually participate in it.Reach... More

The Ganga Aarti is a must experience when visiting one of the cities on the banks of Mother Ganga (Ganges). I was privileged to experience the Aarti prayer service at both Rishikesh and Haridwar. At Rishikesh, the vibe at the Parmath Niketan Ashram was simply amazing. I was lucky to be part of the havan ceremony (fire ceremony) so close... More

First thing first, for those travelling with car, Ashram seems hidden and its quite a task to reach here. Otherwise, parking the car at muni ki rati and crossing the ganga with boat or from ram jhula is a easier option, rather much much easier option. the management staff helpful and considerate but can be a little more humble.
