Location

Situated on the bank of Ganges, Rishikesh is one of the holiest pilgrimage places in India. For thousands of years, it has been chosen retreat of saints, sages, and pilgrims who after retiring from worldly involvement pursued a solitary life of study, meditation, and austerity. Shri Avdhoot Ashram is situated in Rishikesh near the major pilgrimage places of Haridwar. Located as it is between the swiftly-flowing yet serene Ganges and the foothills of the Himalayas, it is an ideal and tranquil setting for spiritual practice.

The sounds of nearby temple bells and devotional songs are carried on the morning and evening breezes, mingling with birdsong and augmenting the peaceful and contemplative atmosphere of the ashram. Rishikesh is one of the most popular pilgrim centers and gateway to the Himalayan Shrines of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri. The yoga centers of Rishikesh have enhanced the significance of the place.

From this point, the great Ganges leaves behind her mountain home and enters the vast plains of Northern India. Rishikesh is located at a height of about 1360 feet above sea level. It is believed that several yogis and sages lived and practiced penance here. Rishikesh represents the site where Vishnu vanquished the demon Madhu. At present, it is the unofficial yoga capital of the world with people from around the world coming to learn the practice of yoga from the source.
