Relax, meditate, and enjoy the gardens of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, the world-famous ashram sitting on the shore of the Ganges in the lap of Himalayas. With over 1,000 rooms and well-maintained gardens set in a huge, peach-color complex, the largest monastery in Rishikesh serves as a popular pilgrimage site. Join morning prayers, yoga, and meditation classes, or listen to lectures given by itinerant sages and spiritual musicians. A private "ghat" (set of riverside stairs) leads to the river, where you can observe a Ganga Aarti ceremony or enjoy an ayurvedic treatment.

  • The Ashram premises is so peaceful and beautifully decorated. Loved my stay there. However the room services can be improved. The reception doesn't pick up calls sometimes and you need to go physically to the reception to address any problem. Rooms were good and spacious.
  • A must visit place if you are in Rishikesh. - Good location. - Calm & Serene environment. - Tasty, Hygienic & quality food at reasonable price. - Staff is very humble, polite & helpful. All you need is to turn your head to look for them and within few seconds someone is at your service.
