About Rishikesh

Rishikesh is a holy city on the banks of the River Ganges located at a distance of 24 km from Haridwar. This holy city is called the Devbhoomi and is considered as the doorway to the Himalayas. The holy river Ganga is quite amazing and breathtaking here that enhances the beauty of the place. Ancient history suggests the presence of Rishikesh in the legendary “Kedarkhand” region. In mythological scriptures Lord Rama meditated and practiced penance at this place after he executed Ravana. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, this place in Northern India attracts huge number of tourists and pilgrims from all parts of the country to offer their prayers at this holy site. Lord Rama’s younger brother, Laxmana, crossed the Ganga from here due to which the popular Laxman Jhula was constructed. White water rafting is a major attraction of this beautiful city and brings in adventure enthusiasts from all over the globe. Today it styles itself as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’, with masses of ashrams and all kinds of yoga and meditation classes.
