Tourists, who are looking for a peaceful abode for meditation and yoga, head to Saptrishi Ashram. The Ashram, established in 1943 by Guru Goswami Dutt, provides lodging, meals and free education for poor kids. Sapt Rishi Ashram, as its name would suggest, was the place where seven sages, namely Kashyapa, Vashisht, Atri, Vishwamitra, Jamadagi, Bharadwaja and Gautam, meditated. As per the mythological records, when all the Sapta Rishis (seven sages) were doing meditation, they get disturbed by the gushing sound of river Ganges. Annoyed and irritated due to sound, all seven of them trapped in the flow of the river. Later, Ganges River splits into seven water streams so there is less noise. Those seven river streams are now known as Sapt Sarovar, and the point where the seven sages meditated is called as Saptrishi Ashram.
Sapta Rishi Ashram is a retreat for the yoga lovers too. Even at present time, Sapta Rishi Ashram attracts many sages, saints and rishis from different parts of the world.
