Mandir, Uttarkashi - 1978
In 1953, after Guru Dev's death, his secretary,
Brahmachari Mahesh ji, travelled to Uttar Kashi and stayed in this ashram, and lived
in isolation for many months.
The huts to the front of the ashram
were erected sometime in the early 1960's, as it was envisaged by

were abandoned in favour of premises
elsewhere (in Rishikesh, at Shankaracharya Nagar), the government
annexed them, for the storage of sacks of grains.
