Outstanding jalebi and kachoris in the morning. Grumpy staff but what the hell, it lends to the character.

This is quite a small temple. It has just over 1,100 rooms in which Indians, over 55 and single, can stay for free.

Gita Bhavan is very popular place for devotees who come to Rishikesh for spiritual reason, situated on bank of Ganga having 1200 rooms with paid dinning area. I don't understand why photography is not allowed inside, it has simple temples and very quite area..

Gita Bhavan is an old landmark in Rishikesh, I have been visiting this place since childhood. I love the collection of textiles it sells, especially good quality and reasonable priced variety of woolen shawls. I find the ayurvedic medicine shop very helpful and have bought Amla juice and honey from here. There is a lot to explore at Gita Bhavan... More
