There are many spiritually-charged places which are mediation havens in India. Here we list some of the outstanding meditation destinations in this spiritual land.

Tiruvannamalai, India


Extracting yourself from the noise and finding solace in meditation is rejuvenating, from seeking focus in your life and sorting the thoughts in your heart and mind to recovery from any sickness or even just to be relaxed, and India has the best places to go to just these.  

Here are the top 5 recommended sites for these purposes:

1. Tiruvannamalai

Located in a sprawling 24-acre temple campus, Tiruvannamalai is one of the greatest Saivite shrines in India.  It is said to draw hundreds of thousands of pilgrims every full moon as its hill is considered to be a manifestation of Siva.

2. Rishikesh

The birthplace of yoga, Rishikesh is located on the banks of the Ganges River and is surrounded by hills on either of its sides. The good number of ashrams and yoga institutes in Rishikesh undoubtedly attracts knowledge, solace and peace seekers.

3. Haridwar

Haridwar, the “Gateway to God”, is considered one of the seven holiest places in India.  It is a wise choice for Hindu pilgrims who take a dip in the holy water of the Ganges River, believed to wash away their sins.  Haridwar is located at the foothills of the Himalayas in Uttarakhand.

4. Vrindavan

The Banke Bihari Temple, situated in the holy land of Vrindavan, is the most revered temple in the entire Braj region of northern India.  Bankey Bihari Ji is worshiped and looked after as a child.

These destinations have been places of spiritual practice for many centuries.  People from all over the world flock to India - for spiritual cleansing, meditation and some other parallel reasons.
