  • Beautiful aashram.. Satsang with guruji is enriching experience.. Aashram is full of greenery and happy faces ..
  • Like an Ashram should be, extended in a large area, Satvik food, Ashramites mostly in white Kurta, daily early morning Yoga and Meditation, daily evening most rhythmic Satsang with few grooving around and with professional instruments and singers . Very clean environment. Super pleasant weather. Vishala cafe has chowmein,pasta, pizza, bakery with cakes , pastries and a classy cafe sitting ambience too for those who can't eat bland food at the kitchen. 2 more canteens for fresh juice and spicy food next to the dinning and one at main gate. Gaushala milk is everyone's favourite available at the cafes. Must carry your own spoon if you don't like eating with your hand at the kitchen. Yoga mate for yoga. You can also shop at the Ashram. It had cosmetics, clothes, bags, toiletries, snacks, Sarees, yoga accessories, CD's, books, gift item, home furnishing store. Nadi Pariksha centre. A separate Panchkarma centre along side of the Ashram with luxurious stay. Ashram rooms are very neat and clean. Greenery all around , Radha Kunj a lake area . Gurukul providing vedic study where you can see no of children dresses in white white dhotis and chandan on their forehead. Classy Ayurvedic hospital with an awesome view not expensive. School, university all under the name of Sri Sri. Sumeru Travel for taxi services. Laundry service, medical facility, shuttle for old people as one has to walk a lot. And ofcourse multiple effective courses for self peace and help. Beginners mostly starting at the weekend for the convenience. Must must visit. Full of positive vibes.
  • The facility is excellent. Great amenities. Food in the mess was phenomenal, though simple and less in spice. No clue about the activities conducted there been there for a short time in-between a morning run on the pipeline road. The premises are neat and everything seems well organized. The facility has a helipad too.
  • Gr8 place to visit ,meditation, celebrating Indian festival. If you feel lonely n want to Joy with others do visit specially festivals time. I went on Janmashtami nice one.
  • Simply wonderful place. Lots of greenery and water bodies. Weekend evenings musical water fountain is superb ! Food court and canteen facilities are available.
