The quaint Shri Jasnath Asan (Ashram) is nestled in the heart of Rajasthan in the small village of Panchla Siddha (place of deep meditation), approximately 62 miles from Jodhpur. It is one of the oldest Ashrams in the Malwar region. The revered saint Shri Boyat ji Maharaj, a direct disciple of Shridev Jasnath ji, founded the Ashram over 500 years ago. The Ashram is renowned among the followers of the Shri Jasnath community and attracts thousands of pilgrims and devotees annually. The Ashram often offers a peaceful retreat, especially appealing to Western guests seeking authenticity, spirituality, and tranquility. Many saints have practiced their spiritual routines here, making this site highly spiritually charged.

Today, the Ashram boasts beautiful gardens and plantations where organic fruits and vegetables are grown. Shri Jasnath Asan is unique in its architecture. It has been lovingly restored and refurnished by the current Guru Surajnath Siddh to preserve its ancient charm and traditions. The rooms are clean, spacious, and come with en-suite bathrooms.
