Temple

After obtaining the land Swamijee himself swam in the river and collected the stones in a boat to build some caves and a concrete square/plinth /platform (chabutra ). This platform is 30*40 feet and 6 feet high  was made to build a Samadhi for his Guruji (Swami  Lahiri Mahashaya)  and a temple for Sri Shyameshwar Mahadev. After some time he built an Aashram which became famous as the Keshavanand Aashram. Below the chabutra small caves were built where yogis and disciples could do their prayers and meditation .
 

The land of the Aashram has a panchvati garden in which there 5 trees considered very special which are Rudraksha, Amla, Ashok, Mango and Jaamun and others. The trees spread a very fine fragrance.

 

The Aashram which is on the banks of the river Ganga has the Mansa Devi temple on one side and the Chandi Devi temple on the other is a very sacred and revered place. 


Everyday Puja and Aarti are performed at the Aashram and special pujas are also performed like Chandi paath  on Ganga Dusshera ,Rudra Abhishekh on Maha Shivratri and Sewa of Dandi swamees .
