Rishikesh

Rishikesh is a holy town in the Dehradun district of Uttarakhand state in India. 'Rishikesh' is a name of Lord Vishnu which means ‘lord of the senses'. Rishikesh has been the center of spiritual and religious activities since ancient times. The glorious attraction of Rishikesh is none other than the great river Ganges herself, which has a rapid flow throughout the city of Rishikesh. Rishikesh is the birthplace of yoga, and the best place to meditate, do yoga, and learn about other aspects of Hinduism.

Back in the 1960s, Rishikesh gained instant fame as it is the site where “The Beatles” came to stay with their guru, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. The whole place is considered to be sacred as it is believed that meditation at this place leads to the attainment of salvation. Apart from spirituality now Rishikesh is also a hub for the adventure activities such as rafting, camping, trekking and bungee jumping. With the right balance of the spiritual and adventure world, Rishikesh offers a perfect vacation to recharge your soul and mind.
