    I will be in India soon and will be mainly be visiting religious places along with the famous tourist areas as well. I will first be in Dehradun and make my way to Varanasi where I will spend around six days.
    Throughout my trip, I will be staying at small and cheap accommodations like guesthouses, and I when in Varanasi I know there are a lot of ashrams.
    I would like to know what ashrams to stay in Varanasi, please mention is the ashram have any special facilities like WiFi (it's a long shot, but trying my luck ;))

    Hello and welcome to the forum!

    Here's a list of a few ashram accommodations in Varanasi:

    • Sadhu Bela Ashram
    • Mata Anandmai Ashram
    • Radha Swami Bag
    • Kabir Math
    • Shankaracharya Math
    • Jangambari Math
    • Karpatri Ji Math
    • Dandi Swami Math
    • Dharm Sangh
    • Nirajani Akhanra
    • Satua Baba Ashram
    These are all free ashram accommodations. You can stay in any of them while you are in Varanasi. A few notes though:
    • Make sure you ask permission a few weeks before your trip to Varanasi to stay in any of these ashrams.
    • The ashrams are places strictly for spiritual enlightenment.
    • You would need to participate in all four daily sessions of meditations and prayers.
    • Provide service for at least two hours in a day, be it cleaning, washing dishes or cooking.
    I hope this helps!
