Haridwar is the religious capital of the country, where lakh of pilgrims come from all across the globe daily. Some of them belong to poor section of the society who can’t even arrange fooding and lodging on their own. Keeping this fact in view, a four story huge hospice of 86,000 sq. ft. covered area has been built in Patanjali Yogpeeth-2 by Patanjali Yogpeeth (Trust), where lodging facilities for about 1000 persons are available. On ground floor 53, on first floor 90, on second floor 87 and on third floor 84 spacious rooms with modern facilities have been built. This hospice has been named after Mahrishi Balmiki, the author of the great epic ‘Ramayana.’
Yajna is performed daily within the premises so that the persons staying in this hospice may come closer to Indian values and traditions. Visitors can also seek free Ayurvedic consultancy in O.P.D. of Patanjali Yogpeeth. They can also gain the practical knowledge of Yoga and Pranayama by participating in Yoga Classes which are conducted at one hour interval.
