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.

It was my second time in Parmarth Niketan ! I love the athmosphere, the spirituality and the good vibes that you can find in such a place. Incidentally in such an athmosphere, you always have great expectations when it comes to people attitudes. When we arrive at check-in, the man at the reception was pretty rude. We made our reservation... More

I rated it 1/5 as an Ashram but it's actually a good place to stay. Don't expect friendly advice and treatment from this place though, they have too many guests to care (i guess). The garden is pretty good and some rooms are better than others. There's no food offered btw, the website lies. Also expect to pay about 250... More

Parmarth's grounds are absolutely beautiful and enormous: the statues, shrines and gardens are wonderful, so it's worth visiting just to experience the beauty of it all. We stayed in a room in the Ganga Block which was pretty decent: the room was very tidy and clean enough although the floor was a bit dusty and the bathroom had rusty pipes.... More

Never again. this was torture. The rooms where dirty, dont ask about the bathroom. The light in the nighttime makes you fell that you are in prison. No slepp for 3 nights because of the never ending traffic right in front of the entrydoor. You feel like you are slepping on the Autobahn. Also the stuff breathtaking unfriendly.
