Deep inside a dense oak forest is located the Shree Kalyanika Himalaya Dev Sthanam Ashram, or Dol ashram as it is commonly called in this region. The ashram is located 12.9 KM from our homestay.
The ashram consists of a large Lord Shiva statue, a group of temples, a meditation center, a place for ashram’s guests to stay, a hostel for children, their school and playground, a dining area and a cowshed, and some residential areas for priests and for Baba ji.
Not all of these areas are open to the general public. Usually, visitors can only see the Lord Shiva statue and the temples further ahead. The meditation center is also open for visitors but a strict dress code is to be followed.
Photography is also prohibited inside the campus. Cameras and Mobiles have to be deposited at the office just after entering the ashram.
The drive to the ashram is very beautiful, through a dense forest. The stark contrast of the ashram to the forest around it is also interesting.
Do plan a day trip when you stay with us. Learn about their Vedic schooling and the ways by which they are helping the local communities. Also, offer your prayers at the temples when you visit this place.
