One of the most followed spiritual gurus in India, Neem Karoli Baba needs no introduction. It was back in 1964 when he established the Kaichi Dham in Uttarakhand's Nainital. The mystical place broke into headlines when Indian cricketer, Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress, Anushka Sharma went to Kaichi Dham with their daughter, Vamika Sharma. Although people were aware of Neem Karoli Baba's ashram, Kaichi Dham, even before Anushka and Virat's visit, but it's fair to say that it was the couple's trip that made it a 'must visit' place on social media for the devotees.

For the unversed, Neem Karoli Baba was a devotee of Lord Ram and the Hindu deity, Hanuman. Such was the impact of his teachings that famous global personalities like Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Julia Roberts visited the Kaichi Dham to take Neem Karoli Baba's blessings. Many faithful Neem Karoli Baba's devotees consider him as the incarnation of Lord Hanuman. It was back in 1973 when Neem Karoli Baba went to Vrindavan, where he left his body.

#2. Shri Permanand ji Maharaj - B Praak

Shri Premanand Maharaj is one of the few spiritual gurus in India, who has 'zero haters'. At a time when people never skip a chance to demean others on social media just because of the difference in their opinions, it's incredible how people hardly disagree with the views and teachings of Premanand Maharaj. For the unversed, Premanand Maharaj's ashram is in Vrindavan and due to his massive fan-following on social media, every now and then, we come across devotees paying a visit to him and asking questions about their respective problems.

Recently, we saw popular Punjabi singer, B Praak at Shri Premanand Maharaj's ashram and pictures of the same went viral on social media in split seconds. As per a report in Aaj Tak, B Praak and his wife, Meera Bachan went to Premanand Maharaj after the unfortunate demise of their second son, who passed away at the age of 1. The couple shared their pain with the spiritual guru, who guided them with his teachings.

#3. Guruji Chattarpur Wale - Jacqueline Fernandez and Rishi Kapoor

Guruji Chattarpur Wale is one of the most followed spiritual gurus in India. Known by other names like Dugri Wale Guruji or Shukrana Guruji, such is the impact of his fan following that even some of the most recognised celebrities never miss a chance to visit his mandir in Delhi. Over the years, we have seen many B-town celebs like Jacqueline Fernandez, Hema Malini, Vivek Oberoi, Rishi Kapoor, and many others paying a visit to Guruji’s Bada Mandir.

As per a report in the Financial Express, Guruji Chattarpur Wale was considered as the incarnation of Lord Shiva. It was back in the 90s, when Guruji constructed a Shiv Mandir in the Bhatti Mines area of Delhi’s Chattarpur. After changing people’s lives for decades, Guruji took samadhi in the same mandir, and even today, thousands of devotees go there to receive his blessings.

Ramehsbhai Oza even guided Dhirubhai Ambani and has been a crucial member of the Ambani family, courtesy of his decades of relationship with them.
