Visiting the Ashram
All are welcome to visit the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram and Hanuman Temple and enjoy the temple room and grounds. We adhere to Maharaj-ji’s teaching of Sub Ek, we are all one.
Our detailed daily schedule and programs are below. We remind everyone to please adhere to the community guidelines posted here, and ensure you are supporting the safe, sacred, sustainable nature of the ashram.
A Note on Parking: Due to limited parking, we encourage people to carpool or take alternative forms of transport. If you must drive, the main ashram parking lot and designated overflow parking areas are the only available parking areas, parking on nearby streets or on adjacent properties will result in your vehicle being towed. Please do your part to help the ashram maintain positive relations with the neighborhood and wider Taos community.
