Create an itinerary including Vashishta Gufa
Find your peace in a sacred ancient cave at Vashishta Gufa, on the banks of the Ganges in the midst of a ficus tree grove. Believed to have housed a medidating Lord Brahma’s manasputra, sage Vashishta, the place was dubbed as the yoga capital of the world. Maintained by the late guru Swami Purshottamananda since 1930, the cave houses a Shiva linga considered as sacred. You can reach the cave after climbing some 200 steps.
