This time, I am taking you to Rishikesh, a lovely place located at foot hills of Himalayas. It is also the Gateway to Himalayas. This is a sacred city for all Hindus and they make it a point to visit this town and worship, bathe in Holy Ganges at least once in their life time.
Ganges is considered as the most sacred river in India worshipped by all Hindus. .She forms the life line of millions and they depend on her for their daily needs.A bath in Holy waters washes the sins away.
She is worshipped as Goddess and Mother and as per legend she emanates from the matted locks of Lord Shiva.
One can also enjoy the breath taking view of the great river Ganges from the suspended bridge across the river. It is really difficult to take the eyes off this great enchantress, Ganges from the suspended bridge. 2 Kms away from Lakshman jhoola is Ram Jhoola.
Legend : It is believed that Lord Rama did penance at this place here before he killed Ravana and Lakshmana crossed river Ganges at the place where the Lakshman Jhoola stands.
Rishikesh abounds in temples and ashrams one can spend time here eternally in pursuit of the divine.
Enjoy the pristine beauty of river Ganges below .
