RISHIKESH
The Fount of Arsha Samskriti 

Rishikesh is really a veritable unearthly haven of rare bliss, a spiritual resort for vanaprasthasram, and a sure and safe seat of beatitude. There hovers over every inch of this sacred soil, divine tranquility and celestial harmony. It is here in the caves of Himalayan range, or in the parnasalas on the banks of Ganges, world famous saint-seers, sitting in motionless solitude meditated on the Highest In all seasons, lasting for centuries, till gods blessed them with flashes of intuition-source of the entire Bharata Vignana that has surpassed all the lab-born modem science.

Some of their typical brood steeped in ancient insights are still seen in sequestered places on the bank side asrams of this revered city, causing an irrepressible wonder in the worldly men, indulged in counting of beads or chanting of God's name in and out of the day, but finding no peace within or without. To this holy spot, bus or train transports the yatris in about half-an hour journey from Haridwar. After visiting the famous Satyanarayan temple on the way, the pilgrims reach this quiet town surrounded on three sides by the Himalayan range.
