The point where Ganga River leaves the Himalayas (at Shivalik), and starts flowing into Northern India plains, is called Rishikesh. Located in the foothills of Himalayas, Rishikesh is a small city in Dehradun, albeit with strong religious and spiritual significance. Therefore its history and etymology deserve a little attention. The word Rishikesh or Hrishikesh is made of two words, Hrishik which means senses and ish which means master or Lord. It therefore translates to Lord of the senses used for God Vishnu who blessed the great sage Raibhya Muni that he (Lord Vishnu) will reside in Rishikesh forever.
Rishikesh receives a large number of tourists and pilgrims for two major reasons. The first one is its proximity to Haridwar. It is only 25 km up north of Haridwar and you can comfortably travel between the two towns using local transport or cabs. Secondly, Rishikesh acts as a base camp or starting point for the 4 pilgrimage sites of Char Dham.
