A Minute in Rishikesh, India

Rishikesh is a riverside retreat for those weary of India’s hectic pace.

Longing to get away from the noise, smog and high energy of India’s bigger cities? Rishikesh breathes deeply and moves at a slower pace; much like the yoga practices for which it is famous. This video will give you a quick peek at this gem on the Ganga (Ganges River).

Sunset aarti ceremonies take place along the river’s edge in every city in India, but depending on where you are, the size and splendour of the ceremony varies. Enjoy these images from one such aarti in this beautiful river valley.
