pouranic story refers this to another episode, wherein Lord Vishnu revealed
Himself, when pleased with the penance of a reputed sage. The sage saw
Mahavishnu as Kubja on a mango tree. Despite his short stature, He feasted the
eyes of the sage with His bewitching charm. So this place went by the name
Kubjamraka. There are some more legends similar to this in nature. So the asrams
lying between the slopes of wooded Himalayas and the sacred Ganga hold in store
unique spiritual wisdom, besides radiating sublimity of rare type. Hence
attraction for solace seekers from all over the world.
after bathing in the holy Ganges, pilgrims start visiting several temples and
asrams scattered all over the sprawling town of Rishikesh.
