  • We had a perfect honeymoon trip to Uttarakhand thanks to All Seasons! When we first started the planning process for the trip, agent Rahul had sent us a draft itinerary based on our general interests, time to spent, and probably the typical stops that a first time visitor to Uttarakhand would like to experience

  • Nitin did a superb job of organizing a fabulous family holiday for seven of us to celebrate special birthdays in April 2016. He paid amazing attention to detail especially as one of our group uses a wheelchair. Nitin was quick to respond to our original inquiry and quick to understand the type of holiday.

  • Arun was our point of contact and we feel he did an outstanding, superb, wonderful job. My wife and I have made several trips with mixed experiences and were a little concerned about going on a fifteen days Himachal trip on our own. But we have to give Arun major props!!! All our transfers, tours and connections went exactly as scheduled

Bharat Temple Rishikesh

It is the most ancient, most sacred & most famous temple situated at the heart of the city. It is believed that city's existance came into being with this temple only. In about 789 A.D on the auspicious day of Basant Panchmi, Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya reinstalled the presiding deity in the temple. On this day every year the Shaligram is taken for a holy bath in the scared Mayakund and then carried in a grand procession through the city to be taken back to the temple for the symbolic reinstallation. It is also believed that if any pilgrim on the day of Akshya Tritiya takes 108 parikarmas(rounds) of Lord Shri Hrishikesh Naranyan at this temple and seeks the blessing at his feet (it is only day when Lord's feet are uncovered), all his wishes are fullfilled and it is equivalent to the piligrimage to Badrinath
The temple is mentioned in Vishnu Puran, Shrimadbhagwat, Mahabharat, Vaman Puran & Narsingh Puran. Lord Hrishikesh known as Shri Bharatji Maharaj is different from Lord Rama's younger brother Bharat. He is known by the name of Bharat because he is the incarnation of Lord Vishnu in Kaliyuga, the preserving force holding Shankh, Chakra, Gada & Padam in his four hands.
