About us

Our Mission

Ved Niketan Dham was established by His Holiness Vishwaguru Late Swami Munishanand Ji with a vision to take the Indian knowledge of yoga to the world.

Situated on the banks of the holy Ganga, Ved Niketan Dham is one of the oldest ashrams in Rishikesh. The architecture of the place will take you back to olden times of yogic tradition. With beautiful gardens, a backdrop of hills and enchanting views of the river, the place is perfect for anyone to dive deep within and experience peace and serenity. 

The ashram offers comfortable stay, sattvic food and daily drop-in yoga classes, and lies in close proximity to the busy market area as well as quite forests of Rajaji National Park.
