Places to Visit in Rishikesh

Situated in Uttarakhand, Rishikesh is a popular hill station and a pilgrimage destination. The city is located in the foothills of the Himalayas along the banks of River Ganga, and is widely famous for yoga and meditation practices. Lined with temples and ashrams, there are some very beautiful places to visit in Rishikesh.

Perhaps one of the best places to visit in Rishikesh is Triveni Ghat. Every evening, pilgrims from all around the country flock together to witness the Ganga Aarti ceremony here, which is a ceremonial tribute to the holy river. For four hours, the ceremony goes on and is accompanied with a song, dance, worship, ceremonial chanting, and a cleansing dip in the river. There is no doubt that it is one of the most famous places in Rishikesh. Mostly all tourist places in Rishikesh are ceremonial or holy places, and are full of color and noise.
