First one is the Jairam Ashram, it is located on Rishikesh road, its immense structure, beautiful interiors and serene surrounding empowers soul. Along with the stay club a quick dip into the ever chilled water of river Ganga (you should not miss it!). The most astonishing part is the white statue depicting epic story of Samundra Manthan. It is worth a visit. Its close proximity to Har Ki Pauri, makes it the preferred choice among travellers.
Maa Anandamayi Ashram is second on the list. It is located at Kankhal. Infamous for being the Samadhi Shrine of Maa Anandamoyi, this Ashram welcomes hundreds of devotees every year. The Satsangs and Arti conducted by the followers and other occupants of the Ashram enthral the soul. You must visit; you will find something fresh and naturally beautiful being placed on your table.
Next in the line is the Prem Nagar Ashram, it was established in late 1944. Created and nurtured by the hands of Yogiraj Satyagurudev, this Ashram is beautiful in all sense. It enhances your spirit in the best possible way.
Another one in the list is the Santoshpuri Ashram which is located close to the Ganga Ghat. You can also learn Yoga here. They have some of the best teachers of meditation as well. It is an epicentre of health in Haridwar.
Saptrishi Ashram is my last pick and as always my favourite one. The interesting story behind this Ashram and the related tales which ensues are the most exciting part. I am not going to be a spoil sport, so to know the story visit yourself and know the details of 7 saints and 7 conduits. This Ashram welcomes gamut of devotees with faith bearers floating in for the best ever experience.
