4.8/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
Find your peace in a sacred ancient cave at Vashishta Gufa, on the banks of the Ganges in the midst of a ficus tree grove. Believed to have housed a medidating Lord Brahma’s manasputra, sage Vashishta, the place was dubbed as the yoga capital of the world. Maintained by the late guru Swami Purshottamananda since 1930, the cave houses a Shiva linga considered as sacred. You can reach the cave after climbing some 200 steps. A visit to Vashishta Gufa represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Rishikesh vacation planner to plot your vacation.

  • amazing place for medical purposes. Many simply meditate. The river flows nearby, the air is filled with moisture. The cave itself is not inspired.

  • It is a nice sightseeing spot. Went here with friends on our recent trip to Rishikesh. Next to ganga ji it is a relaxing spiritual spot.
