The gateway to the Garhwal Himalaya and of the holiest towns in India, Hindus regard Rishikesh as highly as Muslims regard Mecca. Rishikesh has attracted pilgrims, poets, artists and mystics for thousands of years. The Beatles famously went to Rishikesh in the late 1960s and visited Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's ashram which is now closed. At Maharishi's ashram they composed over 40 songs including titled 'The Happy Rishikesh Song'.

Pilgrims clad in loincloths tread the town’s dusty streets & camp on the banks of the sacred Ganges, which sweeps majestically through the town & out onto the great Indian plains. Head for Triveni Ghat to watch pilgrims participate in the every day worship ritual known as Aarti.
