The ashram was built here in the year 1957 for meditation
Yog guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi built an ashram here in the year 1957 for yoga, meditation in the park area. After taking the land on lease from the forest department, the yoga guru built a yoga city here for meditation and yoga.
Around 1984, Yog guru left the ashram and moved to the Netherlands. The park administration then gave up its ownership over it. The Chaurasi Kutiya has been closed since March due to Corona.
The park administration has set a fee for tourists to enter Chaurasi Kutiya. There is a fee of six hundred rupees for foreign tourists and three hundred rupees for domestic tourists. Apart from this, a fee of two hundred rupees has been fixed for the students.
