Lord Vishnu was pleased by his act and appeared to the sage as a "Hrishikesh." The word is combination of two words Hrishik and esh. Hrishik means senses and esh means god or master. It means god of senses. The Sthala Purana states as follows: "Raibhya Rishi preferred the sacredness and beauty of the place where Lord Vishnu appeared, so he remained there in the form of intense plants, which look like his matted locks.

Upon arrival in Rishikesh you will visit the Ashrams, old temples and Yoga & Meditation places.

Rishikesh has spectacular view of jungle-clad hills also confluence of River Ganges and Chandrabhaga. The glorious attraction of Rishikesh is none other than the great river Ganges herself, running rapidly throughout the city. In the ancient time and still so many yogis, rishis, sages and sannyasis attracted to practice yoga in this peaceful location since then, Rishikesh has known as an abode of sages. It is a holy town with so many Ashrams and it is famous for the yoga worldwide

1700 hrs: Evening attend Aarti Ceremony at Triveni Ghat Rishikesh.

The Aarti ritual is of high religious significance. Fire is used as an offering to the river. Aarti is a Hindu religious ritual of worship, a part of Puja. This ceremony includes fire, songs sung in praise of the worshiped, flowers, incense, music, etc. The purpose of Aarti is to show humility and gratitude to God’s divine form. Lit lamps and flowers are floated down the river. Brass lamps are lit and circled clockwise by the saffron clad pandits (Hindu priests), accompanied by chanting or songs in praise of Mother Ganga. The belief is that during the aarti, the lamps acquire the power of the deity.
