Famous for having hosted 7 great sages- Kashyapa, Vashishta, Atri, Vishwamitra, Jamadagi, Bharadwaja and Gautam, this ashram is well known for its tranquil atmosphere ideal for meditation. It is also believed that Ganga split herself into seven currents at this spot. For yoga lovers and people seeking spiritual solace and happiness, this place is a must visit.
As per mythological records, river Ganga had split into seven streams so that the sages were not disturbed by the sound of gushing water. Owing to this reason, the ashram is also called as Sapt Sarovar or Sapt Rishi Kund. Due to its religious significance, rishis, saints and sages from all over the world hold this ashram in high esteem. The ashram has a well-maintained complex with a residential hostel and a Sanskrit school for poor children.
