Rishikesh is known world wide as International capital of  Yoga & Meditation. This is a holy town located beautifully in the foothills of the Himalayas on the bank of  River Ganges.

Rishikesh, the 'place of sages' is a celebrated spiritual town on the bank of Ganga and is surrounded by Shivalik range of the Himalayas on three sides. It is said that when Raibhya Rishi did hard penances, God appeared by the name of " Rishikesh " and this area henceforth came to be known as Rishikesh.

Rishikesh is an ideal destination not only for pilgrims but also for those who want to delve deeper into meditation, Yoga and other aspects of Hinduism. The spiritual haven of the various ashrams is on the eastern side of the Ganga , at Swargashram (on the other bank is the noisy business centre). The ashrams provide lectures and courses to suit everyone's need and quench their thirst for knowledge for fooding and lodging at a reasonable cost
