The world famous Ram Jhula and Laxman Jhula suspension bridges are about 400 meters from the school. The peaceful surroundings will help you become aware of yourself and more focused on your study while you are there.

There are 22 rooms with an incredible view of the Himalayan Mountains, two yoga halls, one dining hall, one big terrace, and a big rooftop. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets bring a different feeling during the morning and evening practices. The local shops, cafes, restaurants, and ATMs are downtown which is just 300 meters from the school. Your home in Rishikesh is away from the pollution and honking of the roads and at the same time very close to all your needs.

They have double and single rooms according to your preferences. All rooms have a private en-suite toilet, hot shower, big balcony, and mountain view. The rooms are comfortable and clean bed sheets, pillows, bath towels, toilet paper, and blankets are provided. Each room has a beautiful picture of Buddha to give you a feeling of calmness. Free Wi-Fi, laundry, and filtered water are available in the ashram.

Ashrams usually represent a return to a simpler way of living, which is very different to a hotel. Generally there is a more communal atmosphere and often an expectation that guests will pitch in with whatever needs doing.
