Kapil Muni's Ashram, Uttarkashi

Home » Destinations » Uttarkashi » Attractions » Kapil Muni's Ashram

Kapil Muni’s Ashram is located in a small village called Gundiyat, located at an altitude of 4500 m above sea level. It is a typical village of the Garhwal region, with black slate roofed houses and small windows. Travellers have to walk a little from the local bus stop to reach the Kapil Muni’s Ashram.

The ashram is dedicated to sage Kapil Muni, who meditated here to seek blessings from the Hindu Lord Shiva. Pleased by his prayers, Lord Shiva blessed the sage. Presently, a Shiva lingam (known as the Kapileshwar Mahadev) is enshrined at the spot where Lord Shiva appeared. Besides, travellers can also visit the Rama Temple, which is located 5 km away in the Rama Village.
