Very peaceful place. Check the activities and opening timings before going there. There are free yoga classes for men and they should have for women as well (but not happening in March when I was there).

This is one of the oldest Ashram along the bank of the Ganga, close to Ram Jhula (earlier known as Sivanand Jhula). The ashram was built by H H Sivanand Saraswati. It is a well maintained spiritual place.
