Parmath Niketan Temple, Rishikesh
(4.3/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. See Parmath Niketan Temple and all Rishikesh has to offer by arranging your trip with our Rishikesh trip generator.

  • A tremendous experience. An hour or so before the sun sets on river Ganga, many people begin to gather on the bank right outside Parmath Niketan's ashram. A few musicians from the ashram start playing devotional songs as the sublime atmosphere decends upon us. When in Rishikesh- don't miss.
  • Very pleasant Hanuman Chalis and bhajans before the Aarti
  • as it is claimed that its an ashram with high values. what u see at aarti is not reality. its just a tact to attract foreigners or high status people for donations. rooms are given on rent but receipts are given in the form of donation not rent because rent attracts tax and rules and regulations. donations are set as per room conditions. question arises donation is donation which depends upon personal will or financial status. hiw can one force to give donation on room basis. why dont they directly charge rent instead od so called donation in the name of religion. now coming to the main point ....people should go beyond muni's office but not towards air conditioned rooms but simple rooms. the hygenic condition is worst. garbage is coming out of dustbin, water is being wasted , walls are dirty, condition of room is so bad that if u want to charge two phone simultaniously then forget. there are 4 plugs but hardly only one will work. fans are too new to work like hand operated ones. just religion and speeches are given but reality is not up to the mark. this ashram is for super rich or foreignera who treated good just for their money and using them as attraction point like animals is zoo...... flow of money is too in ashram but maintanence is worst
  • Beautiful and serene place... Evening aarti is most serene and energizing thing there.
  • My self and my wife both are Sr citizen. we stayed in Parmarth Niketan during 1st july to 8th july 2016. We had visited Rishikesh 1st time.We fill more than homely atmosphere at this Ashram.Discipline, decorum and dignity of Ashram is heart touching.The staff of reception counter and reservation counter are very much polite and cooperative.Rooms are very clean and provided by basic requirement.Ashram provides breakfast lunch and Dinner at very nominal rate and with best quality and test.Dayly at evening arti of Shri Gangamaiya performed by Rishikumars of ashram is worth attending. Further ashram provides emergency medical help by its own health center.
