Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Delhi - Rishikesh

Begin your Tour.
Arrive into Delhi.
Welcome to Vardhman's "Sacred Ganges Tour"!
On arrival in Delhi, you will be met and transferred to Rishikesh by Vardhman's representative to your hotel.
Rishikesh, situated on the banks of the Ganges. Rishikesh, also known as the 'place of sages' is Haridwar, at the confluence of the Chandrabhaga and Ganga. It is believed that God by the name of 'Hrishikesh' had appeared as an answer to the hard penances by Rabhiya Rishi and henceforth the place derived its name. Rest for a while and then, visit Rishikesh which included visit to Laxman Jhula, am Jhula, Bharat Mandir etc.
Laxman Jhula : One of the biggest tourist attractions in Rishikesh, Laxman Jhula is a suspended bridge on the Ganges. Legend has it that Laxman had crossed the river Ganges at this spot on a bridge of ropes. Now a suspended iron bridge 450 ft long, built in 1939 exists here. The Laxman Jhula is something you cannot simply miss on a tour to Rishikesh.
Ram Jhula : Another suspended bridge between Shivanand Ashram and Sawarg Ashram, Ram Jhula has been named after Laxman’s elder brother Ram.
Bharat Mandir : Built by Adiguru Shankracharya, the Hindu saint in 12th century, this is the oldest temple in Rishikesh. It is located on the bank of river Ganges in the old town and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu, whose idol carved out of a single 'Salagram' stands here.
Rishikund : Legend has it that, the river Goddess Yamuna was so pleased with the saint Kubz that she filled this tank with water.
Nilkanth Mahadeo : According to Hindu mythology when the ocean was being churned out for amrit by the gods and the demons, it was venom that first oozed out. This venom was swallowed by Lord Shiva at this spot and the place got its name from that event.

In the evening just when the Sun is about to go down below the horizon, priests perform the religious rite on the bank of the river. This is extremely scenic and people join in the devotional song.
