Sapt Rishi Ashram Overview

Ranked 11 of 77 sightseeing in Haridwar

Sapt Rishi Ashram, located at a distance of approximately 5 km from Har ki Pauri, is one of the most famous ashrams of Haridwar. Hindu Mythology states that the ashram is located, where the seven great sages or Sapt-Rishis, Kashyap, Vashisht, Atri, Vishwamitra, Jamadagni, Bharadwaja and Gautam used to meditate.

It is also said that the River Ganges at this place split herself into seven streams, so that the seven sages mediating here would not be disturbed by her flow. Owing to this reason, this place is also known as the Sapt Sarovar or Sapt Rishi Kund. All the seven streams reunite further ahead and flow as Neel Dhara, which forms a beautiful channel while entering Haridwar.

Religious plus Educational Place

Visited this Sapt Rishi Ashram next to Bharat Mata Mandir. This temple and place was renovated before almost 120 years, said by Poojari. Here there are temples of Ganpati, Shiva, Hanuman, Goddess SarasWati and Durga and Sapt (Seven) Rishi. More over this is a residential Sanskrit educational school. Not a bad visit.
