Rishikesh is well known as a yoga capital as well as an abode of sages across the world. Besides this fact, it is also known for its very soothing atmosphere which attracts religious and spiritual seekers from the world. The old age caves in Himalayan foothills, the holy river Ganges, Temples, Ashrams, Chaurasi Kutiya (Beetles House) and several other places regarding Indian practices are the main attraction.
Mythologically, we say that Yoga originated from Adiyogi, an aspect of Shiva. Shiva is also the celestial Dancer or Natraj – the Lord of Dance.
