Rishikesh in northern India is known as the 'Yoga Capital of the World'. The small town on the foot hills of the Himalayas was placed on the world map when The Beatles came here to study Indian philosophy and meditation in the sixties.

The hippie movement has since long vanished, but Rishikesh keeps attracting a vast number of westerners coming to learn the ancient Indian art of Yoga.
