Nestling in the foothills of the Himalayas, Swarg Ashram is one of the oldest yoga ashrams in Rishikesh. Located in proximity to Lakshman Jhula, this ashram has served as a meditation ground for many famous rishis. The first yogi to come to this area was Swami Atma Prakash who established the Swarg Ashram Trust. The ashram is provided with a modest, free of charge staying option for sadhus and mahatmas. For saints and the needy, the ashram offers free meals every day.

Within the complex, there is a library that is stocked with moral, religious and cultural books. The ashram trust also runs a hospital that gives free treatment to saints and pilgrims. The medicines used here are prepared with the purest of Himalayan herbs. It is considered auspicious to plant a mango tree at this place. One of the unique features of this ashram is the Sanskrit Vidyalaya School, where free Vedic education is provided to poor children.
