Stopover at Baba Ramdev Ashram and Haridwar...

This is in continuation to my previous article on Rishikesh Trip. Rishikesh trip is not complete without a stop at Baba Ramdev Ashram and prayers at Ganges at Haridwar.

We passed Haridwar at night, while going to Rishikesh. Rishikesh is only 23 km. from Haridwar and in between, just on the outskirts of Rishikesh is situated "Patanjali Yog Peeth", ashram of Baba Ramdev

Baba Ramdev is championing the cause of holy healing and YOGA. Ayurveda, Yoga, Surgery and one of the oldest treatise on Medical treatment for Human Body "Charak Sanhita" have originated in India.

Reconnection with the legacy is on the cards as soon as we enter, check out..

The ashram is self sustained with Yoga centres, Hospital and a canteen.

Whatever is consumed in the ashram from medicines to food is produced and processed in the Ashram farms only.

All the preparations in the Canteen is done by the Cow Milk. No worries of any sorts, Happy Eating. We both enjoyed our breakfast, however Min was still on fasting. Now we were afraid, that he might die of starvation...he he he...His tears are real..

Canteen not only serve food, but also healthy eating tips. Very simple but effective.

After breakfast, we started again for Delhi, 15 minutes drive we were in Haridwar. The giant  statue of "Lord Shiva" is the landmark of Haridwar.

Ganges is the holy river. You will see a number of devotees taking a holy dip in the sacred waters of river Ganges.

Min too dipped his feet in the river...

Few minutes at haridwar and we again started our return journey. Nothing much after Haridwar, only a stop at local Dhaba/ restaurant for a cup of Tea...Road side Dhabas have their own charm, do try but be careful while taking a halt at night.

Rishikesh+Haridwar makes an ideal weekend getaway from the hustles of Delhi. Only 240 Km., one can leave on Friday night and get back by Sunday. Keep on travelling guys..
