"Parmarth Niketan is a wonderful place of Eternity and Spirituality located in the lap of the mighty Himalaya and banks of Ma Ganga.  It is like a heaven on Earth.  Parmarth Niketan, a huge ashram, is the manifestation of hard work, sacrifice, contribution of saints/sages and charities from devotees having strong faith in maintaining, promoting and nurturing Vedic Hindu/Sanatan Dharma culture and Indian heritage." - Noida, Uttar Pradesh

"Parmarth Niketan Ashram is the most incredible place to stay in Rishikesh… The atmosphere is so peaceful… The Ashram offers yoga classes twice a day which are worth going to as well. The best part is the Gangaji Aarti that takes place every evening on the ghat just outside the Ashram. You must attend this every evening and absorb the spirituality of Rishikesh. I would only ever stay here again. Radhe Radhe." –London, United Kingdom, review via TripAdvisor
