Explore Rishikesh

The holy town of Rishikesh has the eminence of being the International capital of Yoga and meditation. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas on the banks of the River Ganges, Rishikesh is dotted with a number of ancient temples, ashrams and world renowned yoga and meditation centres. Not only devotees, but travellers from all parts of the world flock to the sacred town for a deeper understanding of meditation. At the ashrams in Rishikesh, visitors can attend lectures and courses offered by celebrated yoga and meditation experts. Apart from Hindu shrines, the town of Rishikesh also invites adventure lovers from all around. It is also the ideal gateway for a pilgrim's chardham yatra, that includes travelling to Yamunotri, Gangotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath.

River Rafting
If you are travelling to Rishikesh between the months of September and November or between March and May, river rafting is a great option to quench your thirst for adventure. River Ganga offers excellent stretches and white water rapids in Rishikesh. Kaudiyala-Rishikesh is a popular rafting route. Whether you are beginner in the sport of river rafting or are an adrenaline junkie, river rafting in Rishikesh suits all abilities.

Prime Attractions of Rishikesh


Lakshmanan Jhula
one of the most visited, the Lakshmana Jhula is a suspended bridge, extending from one bank of the Ganges to the other. The bridge is mythologically significant because it is where Lakshman crossed the Ganga through on jute-rope-made bridge. Visitors can enjoy some impressive views of the Himalayan ranges from upon the bridge. Today, the Lakshmana Jhula connects two popular ashrams - Shivanand Ashram and Swarg Ashram.

Ashrams in Rishikesh
Ashrams are a major crowd-puller in Rishikesh. These ashrams offer regular courses and classes on spiritual disciplines like yoga and meditation as well as Ayurveda. Accommodation facilities are also available for tourists and pilgrims arriving at the ashrams. Popular ashrams in Rishikesh include Gita Ashram (set up in the 1950s), Swarg Ashram (one of the oldest in the town) and Shivananda Ashram (which houses the Divine Life Society, founded by Swami Shivanand i 1936).

Triveni Ghat
The most popular bathing ghat in Rishikesh, the Triveni Ghat is the point where River Ganges takes a complete right angle turn. Hindus also believe that it is here that the three holy rivers Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati converge. Every morning, scores of pilgrims and devotees can be seen here taking a holy dip in the divine waters of the Ganga. In the evening, the sight at the ghat is simply heart stirring. Vedic chants, to the accompaniment of drums and bells, can be heard all around and a spiritual aura surrounds the whole place. Tiny oil lamps on bedecked leaf boats floating on the Ganges add much charm to the whole atmosphere.

Bharat Mandir
Established back in the 12th century, the Bharat Temple happens to be the oldest in Rishikesh. The temple stands in dedication to Bharat, the younger brother of Rama (hero of the Hindu epic Ramayana). Though the original temple structure was destroyed in an invasion by Temur in 1398, the temple still preserves a number of Hindu relics. The inner sanctum of the Bharat Mandir enshrines the idol of Lord Vishnu. The temple stands close to the Triveni Ghat in Rishikesh.

Ram Jhula
The place (or the bridge) is equally popular with devotees and tourists. It remains suspended 3 km north of Rishikesh town. It attracts most visitors due to the fact that it lies just close to the popular ashrams - Geeta Bhawan and Swarg Ashram. Visitors cannot afford to miss the enchanting evening prayer (which lasts for 30 minutes) at the Geeta Bhawan's ghat. Food lovers can head straight to the 50-year-old and the very famous Chotiwala Restaurant, located in Ram Jhula.

After crossing the famous Ram Jhula on other side of Ganges, you reach Swargashram. Hotel Surya Palace is located just 200 Meters from Ram Jhula.

How to reach Rishikesh :

By Air
Rishikesh doesn’t have an airport of its own. Rather, the Jolly Grant Airport of Dehradun, about 14 km from Rishikesh, provides the nearest air link from the city. It is well connected with all the major cities of India. For instance, Kingfisher Airlines operates daily flights between Delhi and Dehradun, while Indian Airlines offers this service five days in a week.

By Rail
Rishikesh has a railway station of its own. However, most people prefer Haridwar, which is 25 km from Rishikesh, since not many direct trains halt at the said station. Many trains connecting Haridwar with major cities of India, such as Delhi and Dehradun, ply on a daily basis. So, one can get down at Haridwar and take a cab, auto rickshaw or bus for reaching Rishikesh.

By Road
Rishikesh is well connected with all the major destinations of the region, like Delhi (227 Km), Dehradun (42 Km), Haridwar (25 Km) and so on. From Delhi, one has to take NH 58 to reach Rishikesh. On the other hand, from Dehradun, it can be reached taking NH 72. Buses as well as taxis are easily available for Rishikesh, from all these places.
