Are you a seeker of spiritual enlightenment or just looking for a good time? Either way, you can’t miss the Raghunath Temple in Rishikesh. This temple dedicated to Lord Ram and Sita is the perfect spot to reflect on life’s big questions or just take a refreshing dip in the holy pond.
Legend has it that Lord Ram himself bathed in the Rishikund, a small pond within the temple grounds, during his exile. And if you’re lucky, you might just catch a glimpse of the reflection of the Raghunath Temple in the pond, which is said to always be visible.
But don’t let the serenity fool you – getting to the temple can be a bit of a wild ride. The road leading to Triveni Ghat is often jam-packed with traffic, so it’s best to leave the monster truck at home. But hey, who needs a car when you can take a leisurely stroll and soak in the sights and sounds of Rishikesh?
Once you arrive, make sure to check out the Triveni Ghat at dusk for an impressive Aarti ceremony. And if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try some local street food?
