RISHIKESH
The Fount of Arsha Samskriti 

UNIQUENESS

Calm returns after storm. Does not tranquility emerge from boisterous turbulence? This law of Nature is applicable to the two most sacred places, Haridwar and Rishikesh, lying ,say almost adjacent, with hardly 15 kilometers between them, but situated on the banks of the Ganga, and at the foot of the world famous mountains the Himalayas. After witnessing the hectic religious activity at Haridwar, like bathing to the chants of pandas; making parikramanas to the temples; sipping of the holy thirtha amdist chiming of bells; listening to the legends of deities; ascending and descending of the hills consecrated by the adorable, deities; performing several types of religious rites; boarding and alighting of the vehicles, transporting to shrines; standing in long queues; either for buying tickets for lunch, or travel, yatris experience the weight of tedium and fatigue, vying as it were, with each other to exert their full sway, and when them- seek means for respite to recuperate themselves for further onward progress, as if an answer to their ardent seeking, Rishikesh in a flash comes to their rescue and takes them to Rishikesh - quiet haunts of rishis, seers, sadhus, saints, whose yearing for spiritual solace and simplicity peep through their attires; sublimity exudes from their serene visages, and contentment gushes out of their hearts.
