Shri V.T.Chitnis (Anna) the founder of “SHREE VITHAL ASHRAM” journeyed to Kailash Mansarovar in 1956 to immerse the ashes of his beloved father. The grandeur and splendor of the Himalayas left a deep impression on his mind and was captivated by the charm and serenity that these lofty mountain ranges propelled him into. But also the Himalayas are difficult to reach so he resolved to establish an Ashram and Temple on the foothills of Himalayas to assist the aspirants to the Himalayan shrines. Thus an agreement for nine acres of land at Muni-Ki-reti, Distt. Tehri Garhwal (Uttaranchal) was signed on 28th May 1963 and image of LORD VITTHAL was installed in the Ashram on 14th May 1964. The Ashram was officially declared open this very day. The Ashram was turned into a trust in March 1966 with well-defined aims and objectives.
