Kanvashram is a holy place where Rishi (Sage) Vishwamitra and Rishi Kanva meditated for a long time. The ashram is located on the banks of Malini River surrounded by thick forests and hills. As per legend, Rishi Vishwamitra did intense meditation and pleased the Gods. This made Indra (King of Gods) very nervous and he sent the Apsara (Damsel) Menka to distract the Rishi. They had a daughter, Shakuntala. She was left in the Ashram in the care of Rishi Kanva. The ashram is named after him. The Ashram also provides accommodation facilities.
