The ashram is located on a tranquil property in the lap of Mother Nature, situated next to an ever-murmuring river called Giri Ganga. Tall, lofty mountains, lush green valleys and a starlit sky are the silent keepers of this ashram. Infrastructure is gradually being enhanced to accommodate more devotees and for longer duration in the future. Please check out the Events page to see the dates when the ashram is open for you to visit. This serene ashram is in Himachal Pradesh, about 30 kilometers from Solan or roughly 100 kilometers from Chandigarh.
The temple houses a beautiful life-size idol of Sri Hari. Sri refers to the feminine aspect of God and Hari, the masculine. The idol was sculpted in black stone in South India. Its specialty is that if you look upon it in devi-bhava, it feels as if it’s the idol of Goddess but if you see it in deva-bhava, it looks like Vishnu’s idol.
Every morning we wake up the Lord with a chanting of Vishnu Sahasranama and every evening Devi is put to sleep with a chanting of Lalita Sahasranama.
On every ekadashi (eleventh day of the lunar calendar), we do abhishekam in the morning with Vishnu Sahasranama. On every purnima (full moon night) and amavasya (new moon night), abhishekam is done in the evening with Lalita Sahasranama. In addition, abhishekam is done on all Navratras and major festivals.
If you wish to donate for the temple needs, you can do so by sponsoring an abhishekam by paying Rs. 3100. A small packet of dry prasadam is posted to you from the abhishekam that day.
