    It is a must to experience the Gangga Aarti while you're in Rishikesh. It starts at 7 pm but if you want to get a great seat in front you should go early. There is an amazing feeling of calm and serenity at this temple. There will be children asking for money so if you intend to give, do bring small change as they don't share their bounty with others.

    This is the location of massive statues of Lord Vishnu and Hanuman and a perfect place to take some pictures. Do go into the ashram as well for a meditative walk in their gardens and take some pictures.

    We were suggested this place bya friend who visited in 2020. This place is also known as Baba Kalikamliwala Ashram. It is on the east river bank of Ganga river.
    believe me, we were flabbergasted with the place. We booked a fully furnished air conditioned one bedroom kitchen apartment after a lots of efforts. It has to be booked ONLINE ONLY and the decision makers are based out of Calcutta.
    But, it was worth all the efforts.
    You have to go to the canteen for your breakfast,lunch and dinner. Food is very economical.
    The whole place is full of life.
    Our flat no.316 was very close to River Ganga. hardly 100 mts.We attended Ganga aarti for all the seven days we stayed there.
    IF YOU JUST WANT TO REST IN CLEANEST ENVIORNMENT, DO YOG EVERYDAY, AND HAVE A TIME OF YOUR LIFE, YOU MUST VIVIT THIS PLACE.
    By the way, for young people who want to roam around to visit other attractions like Laxman Zula etc. 2 wheelers are available on rent. Rs 500 per day !!!!

    This place was, is and always remain as the main attraction of Rishikesh. A must visit site for every tourists or pilgrimage. Getting a room here is however very difficult, rooms are mostly free. We were anyway not interested to stay in free rooms. The khadi store outside Gita Bhavan was not that attractive.

    With the closure of Laxman Jhula this place has lost its popularity. We could not a get a view from the Jhula.

    If you are looking for a spiritual place in silence, away from the busy and noisy streets of Rishikesh, this Shiva Temple and its surroundings are the right choice.

    One of my fav places to stay. The main ashram premise is not that big. But they have international standard basic rooms which are very clean and comfortable. Its lovely to just sit by the ganges in the evenings enjoying the breeze. They have a small intimate temple which is powerful. And they go on a donation basis. One of the best places to stay.
