Sitting on the banks of the Ganges River, Sivananda Ashram offers peace and quiet to all visitors wishing to meditate, soul search, or ponder the meaning of life. A great teacher of Yoga, Swami Sivananda, founded the ashram in 1936. Visit his meditation room, the walls of which are inscribed with the swami's wise words. Be prepared to climb many steps to reach the ashram from the main road. To visit Sivananda Ashram on your trip to Rishikesh, use our Rishikesh tour itinerary builder .

You probably have to register two months in advance to stay there longer. However, it is possible to participate in drop-in hours spontaneously.
Very divine place. Beautifully located on slope. Big place & bring out your deep faith & humanity out. Great place forcing u to look within.
The is the oldest and the one of the best ashrams in Rishikesh. The ashram is well kept and taken care of. The rooms are very clean and very nice. The ashram is right at the ram jhula and has very beautiful surrounding. A must visit place.
