Visiting the Ashram
NOTE: Hanuman Jayanti has been cancelled and the Neem Karoli Baba Ashram in Taos will be closed starting March 16th in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Details are here. We will update this site, Facebook, and send out emails as the situation changes. This close will be for the foreseeable future (we expect at least to the end of April).
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.
If You Have Children: Parents must watch their children at all times and be responsible for their children’s safety. More details on our Visitor Guidelines for Children CLICK HERE
If You Would Like to Bring an Offering for the Kitchen: The ashram gladly accepts offerings of food items, but we do ask that you ensure that any donated items are vegetarian and free of egg, onion, and garlic. More details about items we need here.
