Delhi Varanasi Rishikesh

6 days

Delhi Varansai Rishikesh…where sadhus(holy men) coat themselves in ashes, exquisite temples evoke spiritual devotion, vibrant colors paint city walls, people dive in water to erase sins, temple bells chime to create music and, where meditation is in laughter therapy.

India boasts a dramatic terrain that is not only limited to sunny beaches and silent deserts but also comprises ofremarkable tall mountains and turquoise lakes.

India is chaos…India is bizarre…India is profoundly addictive.

The Delhi Varanasi Rishikesh tour is religious, spiritual, adventurous and full of activity. This trip takes you on a spiritual joyride.

Delhi, the capital, is also a gateway to India. Old and New Delhi fuse to create a city that pays homage to past empires, while wrestling with its modern identity.

Varanasi, on the other hand, is one of the oldest and the holiest cities inhabited by Hindus and Hinduism. Pilgrims come in numbers lining up to wash their sins or cremate their loved ones. If Delhi is the gateway to India, Varanasi is believed to be the gateway to liberation because, according to popular belief, dying here offers moksha (freedom from the cycle of rebirths).

Rishikesh, ‘the Yoga capital of the world’, is populated all over with ashrams and yoga centres. This land experiences an almost supernatural breeze in the evening that makes temple bells chime.

Vishwanath Temple – The KashiVishwanath temple is the center of faith for millions of Hindus. The Jyotirlinga of Shiva, Vishweshwara or Vishwanatha, is enshrined in the temple, considered as one of the holiest temples of India. In Hindu religion it is believed that a simple glimpse of the Jyotirlinga is a soul-cleansing experience that transforms life and puts it on the path of knowledge and Bhakti (devotion). A single

darshan of Vishweshwara Jyotirlinga is considered to merit more than the darshan of other jyotirlingas, scattered in various parts of India. The KashiVishwanath Temple has been a living picture of the timeless cultural traditions and highest spiritual values.
