The Neem Karoli Baba Ashram is a quaint little ashram and Hanuman Temple that is located on the Nainital-Almora road and is popular as Kainchi Dham among the visitors. Situated at the height of 1400 metres above the sea level, this modern pilgrim centre has been built in dedication to Shri Neem Karoli Baba Maharaj Ji, a Hindu guru who was a devotee of Lord Hanuman and is reputed to have performed many miracles throughout his life. Shri Ma, who is the principle disciple of Neem Karoli Baba, now looks after the Ashram which is open for visitors only in her presence.
The Neem Karoli Baba Ashram serves as the perfect image of silence and solitude, for it is tucked away in the foothills, with lush greenery surrounding it. Devotees can even stay at this ashram in Kainchi Dham, which is an altogether different and solemn experience that is hard to put into words. Of course, these devotees are expected to partake in the morning and evening rituals of the ashram without fail, but they gladly do so. Every year on 15th June, the Pratishtha Divas is celebrated at the ashram. A large number of devotees come to Kainchi Dham to get Prasad during this time. A visit to the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram thus is a must, not only for staunch devotees of Maharaj Ji but for any and everyone who wishes to spend a day in peace and silence.
