Styled as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World,' Rishikesh is adorned with eternity and spiritualism. Perched at the foothills of the Himalayan Shivaliks in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, it serves as the year-round magnet to all the spiritual seekers across the globe. The exquisite setting of the main town, the magnificence of the fast-flowing Ganges, the mysticism of forested hills, the crowd of the downtown area and the breathtaking escapades, define this holy city at its best. Rightly referred as the ‘Gateway to Garhwal Himalayas,' Rishikesh enchants the visitors with its innate piety and natural bliss. It is the corridor to the ultimate pilgrimage of the Hindus, the Char Dham Yatra; Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunotri, and Gangotri. Dotted with innumerable spiritual ashrams, Rishikesh catapulted to the Western fame, when Beatles visited the place and immersed themselves into the yogic retreats of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s ashram. The place offers a contrasting possibility of peaceful holiness and adventurous engagements. Plan a trip to Rishikesh and decide your own preference. Either soak in the eternal spiritualism of the place or the enthralling cascades of the whirling Ganges. Away from the fast-paced life of the city concretes, relax a while by meditating amidst a serene environment.
