Sapt Rishi Ashram, situated at a distance of 5 km from Har-ki-Pauri, is one of the renowned spiritual heritage sites in Haridwar. According to a Hindu folklore, this ashram was the meditating spot of the Sapt Rishis, the seven great sages from the Vedic period, namely Kasyap, Atri, Vashisht, Jamadagni, Gautam, Vishwamitra, and Bharadwaja.The legends also say that the River Ganges divided herself into seven streams here, so that the sages could meditate without getting disturbed by the flow. This is the reason that the place is also known as Sapt Sarovar or Sapt Rishi Kund. Further, the seven rivulets join up together to form a magnificent channel, which is known as the Neel Dhara.
