About Rishikund

Translated in the local language, Rishikund means the 'Pond of the Sage' and is one of the most important places to visit in Rishikesh. A natural hot water spring, it is believed that a pious sage named Kubz was blessed by the Goddess Yamuna who promised to stay in Rishikesh forever.

Located within a close proximity to the Triveni Ghat, the most commonly believed story behind this holy pond narrates that it was once a havan kund. During the ancient times, as the holy Ganges was not flowing nearby, it created a havoc among the people. To please Mother Ganges, few pious devotees performed yagna at this place and at their request, Goddess Yamuna appeared and stayed here forever.

Other stories also says that it was once the bathing place of Lord Rama; dedicated to the lord and his wife Sita, Ragunath Temple was built beside Rishikund. On a clear day, you can witness the reflection of the temple on the surface of the pond. Devotees from various parts of the world flocks this Rishikesh tourist place and offer their prayers to the Goddess Yamuna and seek blessings of the other Gods as well.
