The building of Geeta Bhawan consists of a very large complex in which there are discourse halls and over 1000 rooms. There are two well-built bathing-ghats in front of Gita Bhawan 1 and 3 have facilities providing both young and old devotees with the opportunity of a holy dip in the Ganges.

Devotees throng this place in large numbers to attend regular discourses, to take holy dips in river Ganga, to do sadhana and meditation.

Twice a year people gather at this ashram to read the Ramayana together.

One can also visit Laxmi-Narayan temple situated in the premises of this Bhawan. In Geeta Bhawan Saints are provided with free food and cloth.

The Ayurvedic department of the Bhawan prepares medicine according to scriptures from Himalayan herbs using holy water of river Ganges. These medicines are available free or on sale for the people who believe in Ayaurvedic treatment.

One can also see an ancient Banyan tree within the complex of Geeta Bhawan. It is believed that Saint Swami Ramtirth did penance under this tree. The tree and its surroundings on the banks of river Ganga offers quiet and peaceful environment for sadhana and meditation.
