RISHIKESH
The Fount of Arsha Samskriti 

BHARAT MANDIR

This is situated in the heart of town, and for local population, .it is the main shrine of worship. It owes importance and glory to a legend. It was the birth place of Sri Bharatji Maharaj, an avatar of Srimannarayana, who played a pivotal role in the spiritual progress of the country. This attracted several reputed pithadhipathis like Sankaracharya. The good old temple was renovated at his instance and he caused the installation of a grand statue and introduced regular pujas in accordance with scriptures. There is a belief current in this place that whoever makes a hundred and eight pradikshanas o this temple on auspicious days, will become the recipient of the blessings of Badarinarayan, even without visiting his Himalayan abode, lying some 300 kilometers away. It is a much hallowed place visited by ardent devotees, both locals and distant pilgrims.
