This is one of the top yoga centres in India and the largest ashram in the area, located on the banks of the holy Ganges River. It has blossomed over 70 years of its existence into Rishikesh’s largest ashram. The ashram was founded by Swami Shukdevanand Saraswati in 1942.
It is open to all, without discrimination based on race, gender, nationality, religion, caste, or creed.
