Nithyanand Ashram in Kanhangad is dedicated to Bhagwan Swami Nithyananda. But, don't get confused with the name of Swami Nithyananda with controversial Swami Nithyananda of Bangalore. Nithyanand Ashram in Kanhangad is a dyana mandir (Meditation) located near Hosdurg Fort. It is believed that there is mystery cave near the entrance of Hosdurg Fort where Swami Nithyananda used to meditate. Bhagwan Swami Nithyananda first did his tapas at Guruvanam, five kilometers away from this ashram.

Hosdurg Fort gives a beautiful view to near by lush green fields, Nithyanand Ashram and the railway track. During the Lotus blooming time, the fort attracts nature lovers and photographers here.
