Map-How to Reach


    The town which is closest to Kanvashram is Kotdwara in Dist-Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. Uttarakhand is called the “The Land of Gods or देवभूमी“. For there are so many god and goddesses present here that it is humanly impossible to list them. Kotdwara is made up of two words – Kot and Dwara. Kot mean a “fort” in Hindi. A “dwara” means a door or an entry point in Sanskrit and Hindi. So the name possibly implies “entry to fort”, for Garhwal had a number of forts. Its name could have been derived from the river “Kho” on whose bank the town is situated. KANVASHRAM is about 11 kms from Kotdwara by road.
