Gangotri is known for many ashrams, both famous and otherwise. In fact, the presence of sadhus at Gangotri from different sects and different parts of India, make this place unique and they most probably outnumber other kinds of people coming to Gangotri in Uttarakhand, India.
The Sivananda Ashram is one such popular ashrams at Gangotri. The ashram located in the right bank of the Bhageerati is situated slightly away from the majority of settlements at Gangotri. Towards the East, en route to Gaumukh one could visit the Sivananda Ashram, which receives guests other than sadhus also.
