The historic town of Rishikesh is one of the main tourist and pilgrimage destinations in northern India, drawing visitors from all over the world who are looking for calm. It is surrounded by the majestic Himalayas and has the immaculate Ganga flowing through it. Rishikesh actually means "locks or hairs of a guru," according to the dictionary. In this holy city, the serene and occasionally turbulent Ganges River runs endlessly, bringing sustenance and life to numerous terrestrial species. Rishikesh is frequently referred to as the "capital of yoga" and for good reason. Visitors that come to the location to learn yoga and meditation are everywhere. There are many ashrams in Rishikesh, some of which are renowned internationally as institutions for philosophical research, yoga, and other traditional Indian health practices. The Beatles' visit to the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Rishikesh in the 1960s helped make this city famous all over the world. Today, the location is well-known as The Beatles Ashram, drawing tourists from around the world. The serene town has long been a centre for spirituality, but it is also well-known for activities like whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, mountain biking, and camping beside the Holy Ganges. It also acts as the starting point for a lot of Himalayan hikes. The town of Rishikesh, where the well-known Triveni Ghat is located, is one of the two main sections of the city. The other side of Rishikesh, which is 2 km upstream from the well-known Ram Jhula and Lakshman Jhula, is where most of the well-known ashrams, eateries, lodging, and tourists are located. The first two Indian cities to receive the designation of "twin national heritage cities" are Haridwar and Rishikesh.
