SAPTRISHI ASHRAM

THE HISTORY OF SAPTRISHI ASHRAM

 

 

 

THE HISTORY OF SAPTRISHI ASHRAM AND ITS IMPORTANCE

(Verified by Vedas, Shastras, Puranas and other holy books)

 

 

 

 

 

Like various other sacred places mentioned in holy Puranas SAPTRISHI ASHRAM of haridwar was lost in memories, but due to some senior aged saints and local people it is still called  SAPTSAROVAR but none of them could remember or recite the history of saptsarovar and thus did not know the importance of this ancient sacred ashram.

 

Knowing the status of saptrishi ashram and its importance the president of Santam Dharma Pratrinidhi Sabha late shri GOSWAMI GANESH DUTT JI MAHARAJ stepped forward and researched thoroughly about the ashram in Shastras, Vedas, Puranas and finally was convinced that the holy place of saptrishis was this spot .He decided to renovate it and thus got approval of the Santam dharma Sabha. Then after lot of research the history of the ashram was written. The construction work was started on the banks of holy Ganga. Santam dharma Sabha spent lakhs of rupees to construct it. Finally it was inaugurated by the first president of India late shri Dr. Rajender Prasad ji. Till today the saptrishi ashram is considered a must visit holy place of Haridwar. Everyone visiting haridwar should visit the saptrishi ashram. Taking bath and darshan of this holy place is considered very holy by Puranas also.
