Relax, meditate, and enjoy the gardens of Parmath Niketan Temple, 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. Take a look at our Rishikesh day trip site to schedule your visit to Parmath Niketan Temple and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Excellent get up. Very sombre ambience. Kitchen serves very tasty food at very affordable rate to everyone. Rooms are very clean, modestly decorated and priced reasonably. Booking done on line. Popular among tourists both National and International. Gangs artist in the evening is a real crowd puller. Must stay while in Rishikesh. Provision stores are available with good stock.
  • This is a beautiful ashram. I came here for a day of the International Yoga Festival, and had a pleasant time walking arpund the campus. The ashram overlooks the Ganges and has a scenic background of some small mountains. Would recommend a stay or visit here
