About Skanda Vale

Skanda Vale is a place of pilgrimage. All of our daily activities are designed to help you develop genuine peace of mind, self-awareness, clarity of purpose and devotion to God.

Skanda Vale represents no single culture or faith, but stands for the universal human values of Sathya (truth), Dharma (right conduct), Shanti (peace), Prema (love) and Ahimsa (non-violence).

Sacred Sites

There are several sacred sites in Skanda Vale, including the Samadhi (final resting place) of our founder, Guru Sri Subramanium.

Our Temples

Skanda Vale is home to three beautiful multi-faith temples. We also run a mountain retreat temple in the Swiss Alps, known as Somaskanda Ashram.
