In the foothills of the Himalayas you will find Rishikesh. You may not have heard of Rishikesh itself but this is the self proclaimed yoga capital of the world and a destination of great importance for many seeking spiritual enlightenment.
The most famous of those travelling to Rishikesh are probably the Beatles, who visited in the late 1960’s. It was here that the Beatles were introduced to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Indian guru who developed the Transcendental Meditation technique.
Since then Rishikesh holidays have become popular with young and old alike as a place to escape the modern world and focus on themselves.
