Hanuman Mandir (Temple) located at Maya
Kund, this temple was erected in 1924 by Swami Ramdas alias Oriya
Baba. It draws a large number of devotees every Tuesday - the day
traditionally fixed for Hanuman worship.
Another important Hanuman Temple is at Sivanandnagar. Other important temples in Rishikesh include the Pushkar Temple, the Venketshwara Temple and the two 'modern' temples across the Ganga at Lakshman Jhoola. One of these temples is an imposing 13-storeyed structure with many smaller temples in each storey.
A temple which has come up on the right bank of Ganga has arguably the world's biggest Shiva Lingam.
For spiritual studies and classes on meditation, you should head straight to the many ashrams in Rishikesh. In any case, you shouldn't miss visiting the popular ones including Sivanand Ashram, Paremarth Niketan, Yoga Niketan and Vithal Ashram among others.
Ganga ghats are highly revered. One of these is the Triveni Ghat in Rishikesh, known for its divinity. You can visit this ghat in the evening when the much popular Ganga Arti is performed here on the banks of the divine Ganges. A must-watch indeed!
Among many tourist attractions in Rishikesh, the Lakshamn Jhula has its own significant place. Hindus believe that this is the place from where Lakshman (Rama's brother) had crossed the river. Today, it stands in the form of a beautiful suspended bridge.
