Rishikesh: Old Rajasthani
24 Rishikesh: Old Rajasthani

Three old pilgrims from Rajasthan made it to Rishikesh, going about during and after their ritual bath.

Rishikesh represents the Gateway to the Himalayas in the splendid Tehri-Garhwal region of Uttaranchal. The spectacle of the Ganges rushing through the Himalayan foothills is an awesome sight. Several temples dot the banks of the river at Rishikesh, which represents the site where Vishnu vanquished the demon Madhu.
