Hrsikesa word implies the name of Lord Vishnu which has come from the word “hrsika” which means senses and “isa” means Lord, thus Lord of the Sense.

In the month of July a festival called Saavan is celebrated, for which many people visit this place so Rishikesh is crowded during this time of the year.

The interesting fact of this place is that it is also the “Yoga Capital of the World” due to many yoga marrow . There is attractive force for tourist and visitors in the city because most believe that if someone is meditating, then the someone will come closer to the level of getting redemption after wash up in the Ganges.

There is another story attached that Raibhaiya Rishi did his tapasya, that’s why it is known as Lord Hrishikesha.

The vicinity is surrounded by many sacred temples and other than these religious attractions, historical orphanages as well as national parks are looking forward to welcome you. Triveni Ghat, Bharat Temple, Laxman Jhula, Ram Jhula, Neelkanth Mahadev, Kailash Niketan Temple, Kunjapuri Temple and exclusive Vashisht Cave are few of the temples that are a must-visit. Triveni Ghat is named after the three mountainous streams that flowed here in the old times.

If you have been trying to satisfy your epinephrin rush, look no further. Rishikesh is the place to be. You can try out River Rafting, Bungee Jumping , Flying Fox, Cliff Jumping, Jungle Camping, and Beach Camping etc. I personally tried river rafting and was thrilled to bits – and that too not knowing how to swim! The rapid of icy cold Ganges are perfect for such escapade fun .

Rishikesh has been a part of the legendary 'Kedarkhand' Legends state that Lord Rama did penance here for killing Ravana, the asura king of Lanka; and Lakshmana, his younger brother, crossed the river Ganges, at a point, where the present 'Lakshman Jhula' (लक्ष्मण झूला) bridge stands today, using a jute rope bridge

Rajaji National Park, Swarga Ashram and Gita Bhavan are some delightful spots to wander across and discover. The best and hassle free way to visit these allures is to wear comfortable joggers and walk around the city. People who love experiencing adventures can come here for rafting and trekking as well. They can also go camping, rappelling, rock climbing, cliff jumping, kayaking, and bungee jumping and enjoy astrology services.

Holy cities abound in India and coming in a close second to Benares are the cities of Haridwar and Rishikesh in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. Haridwar literally means ‘the abode of Lord Vishnu’ and millions of people flock here every year to take part in an annual pilgrimage.

The 'Kedarkhand' of Skanda Purana, also mentions the existence of Indrakund at this very point. The jute-rope bridge was replaced by iron-rope suspension bridge in 1889.

It is near to Haridwar about an hour towards South, and also one of the holy cities of India.

Rishikesh is another perfect weekend getaway endowed with natural beauty. Haridwar and Rishikesh are meat and alcohol free cities because of their holy nature. Haridwar and Rishikesh are considered the “twin national heritage cities”.

After it was washed away in the 1924 floods, it was replaced by the present stronger bridge. Another similar suspension bridge Ram Jhula was built in 1986 at nearby Sivananda Nagar.

The Mother river Ganga flows in this city, it is also said Lord Rama did penance in this city for killing Ravana, whereas Lakhsman, theYounger brother of Lord Rama crossed the river Ganges, and that is why LakshmanJhula is standing using a jute rope bridge. That bridge was replaced in 1889 by iron-rope suspension.

Rishikesh is always known for its miniatures and Shikhawati paintings that can be a best souvenir for friends and family back home. One can also shop for books related to religion, clothes, and locally manufactured handicrafts.

The sacred river Ganges flows through Rishikesh. Here the river leaves the Shivalik Hills in the Himalayas and flows into the plains of northern India.

The mystical and spiritual environment of Haridwar and Rishikesh are the reason why they are considered perennial holiday destinations for people all around the world.

As Rishikesh is a sacred town so one may not expect to find meat related food items. For a change tasty and healthy herbal food is exciting enough to fill your stomach.

The TriveniGhat is famous for the Ganga Aarti which collects the visitors and preachers too. The emotional attachment of the Indians with their culture is the best example for others in the world.

The ayurvedic teas are a must drink item because the refreshed feeling it gives is unmatched to ordinary sodas and juices. Chotiwala restaurant offers the most exotic Indian cuisine in town. Other than formal eateries, road side cafes and stall are always there to greet you to get pleasure from some authentic Indian entrees on low and reasonable prices.

Several temples, ancient and new, are along the banks of the Ganges in Rishikesh. Shatrughna Mandir, Bharat Mandir, Lakshman Mandir are the ancient temples established by Adi Shankaracharya. Shatrughna Temple is near Ram Jhula and Lakshman Mandir is near Lakshman Jhula.

The bustling lanes of Haridwar will have you roaming for a long time because there’s a unique sight to see at every corner of the town. However, beware of rhesus monkeys who are notoriously famous for harassing people along the ghats.
