A big Ashram liked by foreigners
Nov 2020
Swargaashram is situated on the east banks of holy river Ganga in the lap of the lush green Himalayas in Rishikesh. It is very near to Ram Jhula. The ashram was built in the memory of Swami Vishudhanand, the saint better known as Kali Kamli Wala (the saint with a black blanket). Swargashram is very popular with foreign and Indian tourists, because of its ethnic touch. Devotees stay here in a clean, pure and sacred atmosphere with beautiful gardens. They can take part in Yoga classes, morning prayers, meditation classes, satsang and evening Aarti.

Narrow streets with numerous shops on both sides, selling everything from clothings and souvenirs to musical instruments. Also get a 4x4 taxi from here to Beatles ashram for 100 rupees return!

Interesting Ashram and history

You need to walk to get to this place. Follow the road for 1 kilometer then turn left. On entering go through the first gate then look at the map they give you, otherwise its a bit confusing. Very interesting, even though now its ruins. Good display of photos, one can easily spend 2 hours here.

Not fit for straight and simple people

I had heard a lot about this place and thought it to be one dharamshala or a guest house but realised only after reaching Rishikesh that it is like a tourist district, who come here for a variety of reasons. Youngsters come here "To have a good time", which was disclosed by a tea vendor. He told us that on all weekends, there is a shortage of cigarettes and condoms.

Elderly come here to seek peace but are looted by various Ashrams, which are lined up here. End number of able bodied persons, wearing saffron robes were seen begging on the streets, which shows their unwillingness to work.

It is better to stay near bus stand and come here for a street photography session or just a stroll by river Ganga.

Swargashram is basically the group of dharamshalas and temples on the bank of river Ganga near Ramjhula side of Rishikesh . We stayed at Vanprastha ashram at the end of the road . Great place to stay . The Ganga that is just at the entrance of the Ashram . Room rates are quite reasonable and very nice . The ambience is excellent .
