There is a cave in this ashram where Sage Vashisth, who was one of the Saptarishis, is said to meditated. There is a beautiful temple on the bank of the river within this Ashram. The temple was built in 18th Century and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The ashram offers a calm and peaceful environment to rejuvenate oneself.
