Ganga river in Rishikesh Feb 11, 2012
Rishikesh around 28 km off Haridwar is at the base of Himalaya and the place where Ganga comes down to the plains from hills. A breathtaking experience of natural beauty and undiscovered wildlife await here. Not to mention the peace and tranquility of a landscape associated with sages and meditation. According to legend, sage Raibhya Rishi undertook staunch penance at Rishikesh to please God. In answer to his meditation, god appeared here, manifested as `Rishikesh' (hairs of the sage) and the place thus came to be called after him. Today, Rishikesh has become a center for learning and research in yoga and meditation, the renowned Indian methods for mental and physical health.
