Hello Madison, because India is a popular destination for spiritual seekers, ashrams abound. You will usually find the simplified lodging in pilgrimage and religious destinations, though they may also be located near a Guru’s residence or at an energy vortex. In North India, ashrams are common in Varanasi, Bodh Gaya, Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Dharamshala. In South India, they are scattered across Kerala, Tamil Nadu, and Pune with others clustered in religious destinations. Many ashrams have a minimum night stay and require a form of service or long-term volunteer commitment. Also, you will likely be subjected to the ashram rules and activities, including meal times, spiritual practice/meditation, and education. Ashrams can be free or low-cost. Some are with shared bathrooms and without A/C. Also, meals are almost always strictly vegetarian and no alcohol is allowed.
