Anushka Sharma visited Swami Dayanand Ji Maharaj's samadhi at Swami Dayanand Ashram in Rishikesh with husband and former India skipper Virat Kohli, ahead of India's Test series against Australia. Several pictures went viral in which Anushka and Virat are seen worshipping at the ashram. The duo is expected to perform rituals at the ashram.
Reportedly, Swami Dayanand Ji Maharaj was the ‘spiritual guru’ of PM Narendra Modi. It is to be noted that Virat has taken a break from T20Is and that’s why he is not playing in the ongoing New Zealand series. Also, if reports are to be believed Virat and Anushka are planning to conduct a bhandara at the Dayanand Giri Ashram.

Virat and Anushka's visit to Rishikesh comes days after the duo along with their daughter Vamika sought blessings at an ashram in Vrindavan. They paid a visit to Baba Neem Karoli Ashram in Vrindavan earlier this week and stayed at the Ashram for about an hour and had ‘darshan’ of Baba's 'samadhi', besides meditating in a 'kutia' (hut). They also donated blankets at the ashram, as per reports. Anushka's family has been a follower of Baba Neem Karoli.
After this, the family left for the Maa Anandamayi Ashram.
