Neelkanth Tourist Circuit (approx. Time: 2 Days)

Last Updated:08 May 2009
Neelkanth Tourist Circuit (approx. Time: 2 Days)
Haridwar – Rishikesh – Neelkanth

One of the most common tourist circuits is the Neelkanth Tourist Circuit, which covers three holy places — Hardwar, Rishikesh and Neelkanth. Haridwar is the first stop. A dip in the Ganga at Har Ki Pauri is of immense significance for the Hindus. It is here at Har Ki Pauri that Lord Vishnu left his footprint on a rock. Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi are two well known temples in Haridwar. Rishikesh is the next destination of the Neelkanth Tourist Circuit. Rishikesh is 25 km from Haridwar. Ram and Laxman Jhula are two important points of attractions in Rishikesh.

Bharat Mandir near Triveni Ghat is a popular temple in Rishikesh. The last leg of the circuit is Neelkanth Mahadev Temple. Neelkanth Mahadev is 32 km from Rishikesh. According to the mythology, when the ocean was being churned for 'amrit' (Potion for immortality), first venom oozed out. Lord Shiva drank the venom at a place which is now called Nilkanth Mahadeo.

After a long gap we were once more in Haridwar to spend the beautiful evening again seeing the hillarious flow,sitting at Har Ki Paidi and dipping our legs in the holly water offcourse after sprinkling it all over our body and after offering our prayers to Maa Ganga during mass aarti at 7,watching the flowers and Diya being taken away swiftly by strong currents of water.The ropewayride to chandi Devi was as thrilling as ever.we could not make it to Mansha Devi this time as saawan and Kaanwariyas had made the traafic allover very suffocative.we went to Laxman Jhula but could not drive to Ram Jhula due to several traffic diversions.Saighat and Triveni Ghat at rishikesh are picturesque spots.we went there again and again.Thanx to our stay at Rishikesh this time with Vandana & Fly.We shall always remember our Visit to NEELKANTH by our car on 1st day of sawan2010.Great heights and great rush.They write it as Dwadas Jyotirlinga though tis is not the case,yet it's must visit shrine.Dr Akush
