Apart from its one-off location, the sprawling landscapes peppered with wild flowers, turbulent rapids, swift flowing perennial rivers and a natural tranquillity of the atmosphere make Shivpuri a traveller’s paradise down the ages.

Located at a distance of about 16 Km from Rishikesh, the Shivpuri (the land of Lord Shiva) is a small hamlet settled on the bank of the River Ganges on one side and its tributary on the other. 


This ancient town has a deep spiritual connection with the religious Hindus for being the origin of the holy River Ganges at its vicinity.

A number of pilgrimage sites and ashrams are dotted across the entire region of Rishikesh that attract thousands of followers during the peak season.

 Apart from the religious aspect of the place, Shivpuri is among the top adventure destinations in the world due to its proximity with the Himalayas and some of the gurgling rivers flowing through the heart of the town.

The most ventured activities in this region are mountain biking, cliff jumping, river rafting, wildlife safari, beach camping and others. In a nutshell Shivpuri is your ultimate destination where you can get close with nature and feel a perfect synchronization with your inner self.


History of Shivpuri  



Being one of the most sacred Hindu pilgrim sites of India, a number of myths and allegories are attached to this place. The entire region is considered as Tapo Bhumi- a place for the meditation of the gods.

 On the bank of River Ganga lies a vast woodland area which is called Tapovana where Lakshmana, the younger brother of Lord Rama carried out his reparations in a small cottage. 

There is also another story which says, Lord Rama was sentenced to penance at this spot for killing Ravana, the multi-headed demon king of Lanka.

The bridge Lakshmanjhula (“jhula” means bridge in Hindi) is named after Lakshmana who is believed to have crossed the bridge made of jute and hang in suspension over The Ganges. 

According to the Skanda Purana- the greatest of all the Hindu puranas or scriptures, the place is regarded as the Kubja Mark as it is the place where Raibhya Rishi performed his penance through arduous contemplation by controlling his senses. 

Lord Vishnu was impressed by the sincerity of his disciple and blessed him with the message that the place will be named thereafter as Hrishikesh (“hrishik” means senses, “esh” means master). Some of the believers presume the place attained its name after Hrishikesh, the other name of Lord Vishnu as he visited the place for meeting his disciple.
