Rishikesh, India - 2017

We stayed at the Sadhana Mandir in Rishikesh between 19 February and 27 April this year, 2017. It started out cool and ended up quite hot.

To avoid a huge file, I have divided these Rishikesh pictures into four pages: this general page and three more pages, one each of animals, flowers, and the making of two gold rings from one.

Here are links to the other three pages. You can also go to them from the 2017 pictures listings on the India Index page.

Be sure to also view 2015’s pictures of Rishikesh toward the bottom of the India Index page.

Signs of Sadhana Mandir.
Some of the signs on the Campus of Sadhana Mandir. The top two middle ones say the same though one is in Hindi. The bottom Hindi sign either says, “Don’t pluck the flowers.” Otherwise it says, “Don’t walk on the grass.” The ghat gate is the gate that opens to the walk up to the Ganges levy—you can see the steps in an earlier picture here.
