This is The place that made Rishikesh what it is today, on the banks of Ma Ganga a historic real ashram with Greta library. Many Swami and Sadwini's have come to find spiritual enlightenment here and felt inspired to write about their insights.

This is one of the oldest Ashram along the bank of the Ganga, close to Ram Jhula (earlier known as Sivanand Jhula). The ashram was built by H H Sivanand Saraswati. It is a well maintained spiritual place.

It is possible to stay in Omkarananda ashram hotel, which is very close to Sivananda ashram at Ganga river. I used to stay there several times
