Rishikund Rishikesh

Adjacent to the Raghunath temple lays the ancient hot spring Rishikund. Kubz, a famous saint, built the Rishikund and was blessed by river Yamuna by filling the lake with her holy water. It is believed that Lord Ram took a bath in this tank when he was exiled. Shadows of the nearby Raghunath temple keeps on dancing on the floor of the pond making it lake look more captivating. During the ancient era, the pond was used by the sages to perform ablutions. Since, the pond is next to Raghunath Temple and quite close to Triveni Ghat, here one can reach easily by autos or rickshaw.
