Rishikesh lies on the banks of the river Ganges with the Himalayan Mountains as the backdrop, Rishikesh is beautiful and serene. The air is filled with the soothing strains of temple prayers and the smell of incense. Thus it is also called the'Yoga Capital of the World'. The evening 'aarti' (prayer ceremony) offers a glimpse into India's culture and is truly a sight to behold. Hundreds of pilgrims gather on the banks of the holy river with earthen lamps, which they then float gently down the river. The resounding temple bells, the chants and prayers - all draw you deeper into its spiritual atmosphere. Staying at the Glasshouse on the Ganges adds to the charm of the place. Once a garden retreat of a Maharaja and now a hotel, The Glasshouse has rooms that offer splendid views of the river and the picturesque hills. Come and experience a sense of peace and calm in the holy town of Rishikesh on your India tour.
