KALKAVATAR KSHETRAS IN UTTAR PRADESH

Rishikesh - Balaji Mandir

Rishikesh is really a veritable unearthly haven of rare bliss; 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 modern science.

The two most sacred places, Haridwar and Rishikesh, lying, say almost adjacent, with hardly lb km between them, but situated on the banks of the Ganga, and at the foot of the world famous mountains - the Himalayas are luring pilgrims in all seasons.

There are many temples here built for all deities. Among them this imposing Balaji shrine depicting the South Indian architectural design in sculpture is the benefaction of the world famous Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams, Tirupati. It is of modest dimension, yet contains all external parts. The temple enshrines the lift-size idol of I3alaji, and resembles in all aspects the Moolavigraham of 13alaji installed in the sacred temple atop the Seven Hills. Though the poojas offered to the Lord are according to Vaishnava Sampradaya only, they evoke admiration and appear novel to the northerners and foreigners. The TTD. Guest House adjoining it provides accommodation at cheap rates and extends other facilities, like halls, vessel for conducting marriages etc. if required.

It is in the heart of the town and so very near to bus - stand and railway station, accessible by tonga or auto.
