Overview

Rishikesh is a holy city on the banks of the River Ganges. This holy city, a part of Dehradun district is called the Devbhoomi and is considered as the doorway to the Himalayas. Located in the foothills of the Himalayas, this place in Northern India attracts huge number of tourists and pilgrims from all parts of the country to offer their prayers at this holy site. 

Ancient history suggests the presence of Rishikesh in the legendary “Kedarkhand” region. In mythological scriptures Lord Rama meditated and practiced penance at this place after he executed Ravana. Lord Rama’s younger brother, Laxmana, crossed the Ganga from here due to which the popular  Laxman Jhula  was constructed. 

Originally, Laxman Jhula was built from jute rope. This rope bridge was quite unsafe and was replaced with a stronger iron- rope bridge in 1889. Due to floods in 1924 the bridge was damaged and finally replaced with a stronger suspension bridge.

Rishikesh can be reached by air, rail and road. The nearest airport to the destination is Jolly Grant Airport, which is around 18 km away, in Dehradun. Delhi Airport is the nearest international airport. Taxis are available from both the airports to  reach Rishikesh .

Rishikesh has its own railway station and is well connected to the rest of the country, especially to the northern part. Trains are available frequently from Delhi, Dehradun, Mumbai and other cities. By bus, the destination can be reached from nearby places like Haridwar, Dehradun, Pauri etc. Buses are run by the state as well as private operators.
