In ancient times, the place was home to legendary sages. Rishikesh is a sacred city for the followers of Islamic thought. In the late 60s and 20s, the famous British rock band, the Beatles, spent some time in Ricekesh to study medicine.

The famous Ricekesh is an area 356 feet above the sea level. From three sides the city is surrounded by hills. It is crisscrossed by the Sacred Ganges, and the riverbank is crossed by a series of majestic ashrams. In this area, the water flow is relatively clean because the river is just emerging from the mountain gorges in the present area. The Rishikesh is called the Gates of the Germalayevs. This is where the route to the ancient ancient ancient settlements in the mountains begins.

The opposite sides of the Langa River are joined by bridges, the first of which was the canal one. In 1927 they built the steel cradle of Lakkømanyjögula. Today there are shops on each side of the bridge. There is a spectacular view of the river from the trestle of the shrine of Troyamakökövar.
