Rishikesh, sometimes nicknamed "The World Capital of Yoga", has numerous yoga centres that also attract tourists. It is believed that meditation in Rishikesh brings one closer to attainment of moksha, as does a dip in the holy river that flows through it.
International Yoga week which attracts participation from across the
world, is held here, every year, in February on the banks of the holy
Rishikesh is world famous for Rafting and Adventure. Rafting season
starts from the month of March and ends in July.
Rishikesh is also home to the 120-year old Kailas Ashram Brahmavidyapeetham,
an institution dedicated to preserve and promote the traditional Vedantic
Studies. Prominent personalities such as Swami Vivekananda, Swami Rama
Tirtha and Swami Shivananda have studied in this institution.
In February 1968, The Beatles visited the now-closed Maharishi Mahesh
Yogi's ashram in Rishikesh. John Lennon recorded a song titled, 'The
Happy Rishikesh Song'. The Beatles composed nearly 48 songs during their
time at the Maharishi's ashram, many of which appear on the White Album.
Several other artists visited the site to contemplate and meditate.
