Rishikesh is without a doubt one of the most spectacular and beautiful cities in India. This city is renowned for its dazzling locations and peaceful environment. But if you thought that is all the city can offer, you are highly mistaken! Rishikesh is titled as the ‘Yoga capital of the world’. It is general belief that if you meditate in Rishikesh, you go one step closer to attaining eternal salvation or ‘moksha’.
