recommendation by susanna-alaitz

Located in the lower Himalayas, and surrounded by scenic beauty of the hills on three sides with Holy Ganga flowing through it, Rishikesh is the start point for journeys to important religious places.
Rishikesh catapulted to Western fame when the Beatles dropped by for a visit to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram, and the town is still known as the World Capital of Yoga.
The whole place is considered to be sacred as it is believed that meditation at this place leads to attainment of salvation.
