A new Vrudhashram (old age home), named Anand Ashram for Senior Citizens has come up just 67 km from Mumbai at Vajreshwari through Western Express Highway. Vajreshwari is a home town of religion and popular for its `Hot Springs`. Amongst this natural & pious atmosphere, a campus for Senior Citizens with temples of Ram, Saibaba & Jalaram is built with neat & clean Bhojanalaya, Gaushala (Cow Shed), Medical Centre, Recreation Centre with various facilities including Yoga etc. Intention of the Trustees is to rejuvenate Senior Citizens and bring back their glamour & glory to life.
They have made an honest attempt to create an environment for Senior Citizens, where they can spend their twilight years in comfort, dignity & freedom, they rightly deserve. There are well structured, self contained rooms along with a decent comfort level of living. A variety of rooms are available from a single, double, triple and quadruplet occupancy. Each room is esthetically furnished and offers comfortable and clean living. It is equipped with well carved furniture along with attached bathroom with geyser, shower etc with fully backed power supply.
The accommodation is vast and 80 Senior Citizens can stay comfortably. As you enter the Campus, you will feel like entering a Heaven! Each room is so nice that there are no words to describe it. From terrace, you can see the Nature’s Gift to us-the greenery, the hills, the sun rise, the sun set and what not in morning & evening. A vast area of the Campus gives you liberty to enjoy walking, playing out-door games etc. Temples within the Campus are also wonderful.
As it is new one and not yet patronized by Senior Citizens, it is open for all for picnic, staying for any number of days at payment of Rs 250 per day per individual for accommodation, morning tea, breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea & dinner. Free food is given to pilgrims visiting Vajreshwari on Sundays & Thursdays. If you are in a group and do not want to stay overnight, you can also visit by keeping one room for some hours. Groups of Senior Citizens can thus visit and enjoy a day’s picnic here.
