Abstract: Rishikesh is the "place of Sages" is a celebrated spiritual town on the River Ganga and is surrounded by the Shivalik Range of Himalayason three sides. Rishikesh is situated on the bank of river Ganga at the 30�Â�°-6' north longitude and 78�Â�°-18' east latitude. Rishikesh town has been mentioned innumerable times in the old religious text. It has been called as 'Kubjamrak', a place of religious importance. According to Indian Methology, it is said that when Raibhya Rishi did hard penance's, God Vishnu appeared to Rishi Raibhya on the-top-of-a-mango-tree-due tolatter's hard-triedifaiionTHeappeareil in the form of `Hrishikesh' one who has complete control our senses. The mango tree swayed to one side due to lord Vishnu's weight. Henceforth the place was called `Kubjambrak' and their caretakers were called Trishikesh'. This area henceforth came to be known as `Rishikesh' a distorted version of `Hrishikesh'. In Rishikesh, lord Luxman, the younger brother of lord Rama prayed for lord Shiva to get salvation from the feeling of sin of Magnath's killing. Therefore, the bridge over river Ganga is called Luxman Jhooia.There is a Chandrabhaga river in the heart of town towards Muni Ki Rati. Muni Ki Rati is famous because of Ashrams and muths. Rishikesh is also well known as a meditation center
