A Boutique Hotel in Haridwar
Amrit Bhawan is a tranquil retreat by the Ganga offering bespoke experiences to those in pursuit of simpler pleasures. Built as a modest family home in the 1970s with a charming garden and private ghat by the river, it has been expanded into a plush property, retrofitted with modern amenities. Our guest rooms and suites can accommodate up to 18 people.
Embracing the old rather than rejecting it, the building has been lovingly conserved, pieces of furniture refurbished, and caretakers retained and re-trained.
Slow down within our intimate set up. Sit by the private ghat and dip your toes in the river. Enjoy freshly prepared local cuisine, al fresco, in the garden. Snuggle up with a book in our cozy library. Discover stories from the past and experience the city of pilgrims at your own pace.
We are now open for bookings. Get in touch!
Situated on the edge of Kankhal, the quieter, southern part of modern-day Haridwar filled with ashrams, Amrit Bhawan is an oasis of calm. Apart from finding mention in the Mahabharata, Kanakhala is fabled to be the land where an angry Lord Shiva slayed Daksh to avenge the death of his wife, Sati. The Daksheshwar Mahadev Temple marks this event and is located in the heart of Kankhal, a short 7 minute drive from the property, as are Har ki Pauri and the railway station. Between the serenity of its riverside location and its proximity to the bustle of Haridwar's famous sights, Amrit Bhawan is the ideal place to be.
