Kriyayoga Ashram & Research Institute, Allahabad, is a unique site ever-charged with the Holy Banyan tree sanctified by Mahavatar Babaji in 1894 during the Kumbha Mela of Allahabad. Yogavatar Lahiri Mahasayaji advised his disciple, Priya Nath Karaar, to visit the Kumbha Mela at Allahabad. While wandering through the Kumbha Mela grounds, he was called to the location where Mahavatar Babaji was sitting with an attractive group of disciples sheltered by the green branches of a Banyan tree. Welcoming Priya Nath Karar, Babaji embraced him and bestowed upon him the title of "Swamiji". Priya Nath Karaara later became popularly known as Gyanavatar ( Jnanavatar ) Swami Shree Yukteswar Giriji.
The comprehensive spiritual classic, Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, describes the auspicious event that took place in 1894 at this sacred Banyan tree. It was here that Mahavatar Babaji instructed Shree Yukteshwarji on the importance of Kriyayoga and prophesied the future worldwide spread of Kriyayoga for the benefit of humanity. The Banyan Tree is on the premises of Kriyayoga Ashram & Research Institute, Allahabad. Each year, many people from around the world visit seeking something different, yet they all return home with much more than they ever anticipated – a deeper, true sense of their life purpose.
An old temple propagating the message and technique of Kriyayoga Meditation, described by Maharishi Patanjali in his text "Patanjal Yog Darshanam".
This temple was made by disciples of Swami Shree Yukteshwar Giri, who visited the Kumbha Mela in 1894. This is the location where Mahavatar Babaji met Swami Shree Yukteshwar Giri and advised to write the Scripture "The Holy Science" and forecasted that East and West will meet together with one golden middle path based on the spirituality of India and materialistic science of West.
