Something about Queen of velly”Rishikesh” !!!!
Hello everyone,you are reading my last blog of this year of course.😉
About the city-
Rishikesh is a city in India’s northern state of Uttarakhand,in the Himalayan foothills besides the Ganga river.It’s a centre for studying yoga & meditation.Also known as “Yoga capital of the world”.
Rishikesh has many points so that one can love the place.There are hills,vellies,ganga river,chanting sound all around,smell of poojan,beautiful weather etc.
First i’ll talk about the famous holy river ‘Ganga’.Ganga is main attraction there.I first went to rishikesh when i was only 10yr. old & i’m still continuing this every year.I will never forget my first trip to rishikesh because i have never been to this kind of place before so i was so excited.I experienced that i liked rishikesh more than haridwar.Rishikesh is more peaceful & less chaotic city.There are two bridges over ganga,famous one is called as ‘Lakshman Jhula’ & another one is ‘Ram Jhula’.I always use ram jhula or the boats to cross the river.
When i was crossing the jhula for the first time i had experienced a strange tranquillity there.When i reached to the centre of jhula & look down towards the river,it was so deep,bluish green clear water was flowing very peacefully,soothing air was touching me & i had goose bumps.I had never seen this scene before & never ever felt like this.It was amazing even today it makes me Gung ho!
On the other side of river there were lots of temples,shops of very attractive things made up of metal,garment shops & amazing variety of street food.
As i told you before it’s a never ending trip so i’ll tell you some other interesting facts about rishikesh in my next blog.
Thankyou for reading.Stay tuned.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas & a very happy new year in advance.
