Visitors are welcome at almost all ashrams in Rishikesh, as long as you follow their rules and guidelines and have willingness to participate in some of their religious/spiritual activities.

Here are some Ashrams you can consider:


Parmarth Niketan: The most well-known and popular ashrama along the banks of the Ganges. There is a huge Shiv statue right outside the ashrama which serves as a landmark. Daily evening aarti here is a big attraction. Anyone is welcome to stay here, but it helps to have some inclination to take part in some of the daily rituals of the ashrama. More info at - http://www.parmarth.com/contact_niketan.php


Sivananda Ashrama, The Divine Life Society: One of the good ashramas in Rishikesh. Anyone can attend the lectures (10 AM & 5 PM) and meditations, and enroll in classes. Offers 3 month courses. Note that advance permission is required for lengthy stays. Write: Sivananda Ashram, Divine Life Society, P. O. Sivanandanagar, Dist. Tehri-Garhwal, 249 192, Phone: +91-1364-31190.

International Vishwaguru Yoga Vedanta Academy, or Ved Niketan as it is known locally - this is a temple complex with numerous rooms around a courtyard. You can stay there as long as you want and attend whatever functions, pujas, or lectures you wouldd like that go on regularly. Contact: Sri Ved Niketan Dham, P. O. Swargashram, Rishikesh, 249 304, Phone: +91-135-430279.

The Yoga Study Center, on Haridwar Road: A nonresident center that offers lessons in hatha-yoga for serious students. Taught by Brahmacharya Rudra Dev, an advanced student of B. K. S. Iyengar. Contact: The Yoga Study Center, Br. Rudra Dev, Ganga Vihar, Haridwar Road, (Dist. Dehradun) Rishikesh 249 201, Phone: +91-1364-31196.

Swami Dayananda Ashram: Right on the banks of the Ganga, teaches traditional Vedanta. Has 50 guest rooms with daily arati, prayers & meditation. Swami Dayananda was a former student of Swami Chinmayananda, and divides his time between this and his other ashramas. Contact: Dayananda Ashram, Purani Jhadi, Rishikesh 249 201, Uttar Pradesh, Phone: +91-0135-430769. More info at : http://www.dayananda.org/visit-ashram-form.html

Neem Karoli Ashram: Neem Karoli Baba, the guru whose search brought Steve Jobs to India, founded this Ashram located along the main road before you get to Rishikesh from Haridwar, under the 40 foot tall statue of Hanuman. Open for daily devotions, but not for lengthy stays.
