Itinerary

Start your spiritual walking tour of Rishikesh at the Sita Rham Dham temple. From there, you'll walk over to the Shri Trayambakeshwar, one of the city's most iconic sights and one of India's most important temples dedicated to Shiva - the perfect place to learn all about the context and philosophy of the Hindu religion thanks to your expert guide. Open your mind to the idea of a spiritual journey as you visit more of the sacred sites of this Himalayan pilgrimage centre.

Continue strolling along the banks of the Ganges to the hanging bridge of Lakshman Jhula, from which you can enjoy stunning panoramic views of the multi-tiered Trayambakeshwar temple. Discover the riverside ashrams and ghats that are flocked to by people from all over the world to practice yoga, relax, meditate and connect with one of the most mystical places on the planet.

You'll finish your spiritual walking tour back at the Trayambakeshwar Temple, where you'll experience the Aarti ceremony on the banks of the Goddess Ganga, as the holy river is known in Hinduism.

This ancient ritual, performed every night without fail and of great importance to the Hindu religion, involves making an offering to one or more deities, like Shiva, Vishnu or Ganesh. Lamps and incense sticks are lit, and pandits, Hindu priests, chant, sing and dance around the flames. A truly unforgettable insight into this fascinating ancient religion.
