Construction of Ganga Prem Hospice

Ganga Prem Hospice Design
The Hospice is designed in sweeping curves oriented to absorb the healing and warming rays of the morning and afternoon sun. Facing the river Ganga and the guava orchard that lies between the Hospice and the river, all the rooms of the building will have a beautiful and peaceful view.


We enter the Hospice gate in the northwest corner of the site. Before us is an open reception area that gives a view of the central garden and the shrine. The curved wings of the Hospice stretch out on either side of the hall. To the left we have the office, library, bathrooms, art and music rooms, yoga/conference hall, kitchen, storeroom and dining room. To the right we have allopathic and holistic clinics, the emergency room, autoclave, dispensary, doctor's cabins, paediatrician room, laboratory, E.C.G. room, counselling room and spiritual counselling room.

A verandah runs along the length of both arms of the facility and opens onto the circular central garden, which has pleasant sitting areas, shrubbery, flowers, trees and water spaces. The shrine is situated opposite a circular water canal and is flanked by flowering and medicinal trees. Beyond, Gangaji can be seen flowing serenely on the far side of the guava orchard. Rajaji National Park and the foothills of the Himalayas stretch away from the other bank of the river.

Back in the Hospice, an open stairway, a wheelchair ramp and an elevator provide access to the first floor, which has residential rooms for the patients. In the left-hand wing there are twelve single rooms and a small ward with 5 beds, while the right-hand wing has two double rooms, a nurse's station, minor procedure room, laundry, bathrooms and leisure room. In the open area which joins the two wings there is a circular satsang/meditation hall, which lies above the main entrance on the ground floor.

The open stairway and elevator take us to the top floor, which hosts the staff quarters. At the centre above the satsang hall is an open terrace, which leads to the verandahs of the left and right wings. Set back from the verandah on the left is the director's room as well as rooms for medical staff, spiritual advisors, alternative therapists and volunteers. The right wing contains the guest bedrooms and three dormitories. Either side ends in an open terrace overlooking the gardens below.

The Hospice site which is flanked by a row of trees has a driveway to the left which leads to the storeroom. Another roadway on the opposite side branches off from inside the main gate and runs along the right wing of the facility leading to the mortuary, central oxygen supply and generator room, housed in a separate building. Parking spaces provided at the road side of the Hospice open onto a front garden.

Your generous donation will ensure that the construction of the Ganga Prem Hospice will take place in the years 2014 and 2015.
