Royal visitors from Britain in Rishikesh


Yesterday, 6. November, Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla Parker-Bowles have visited our holy little city. Both are staying 9 days in India before proceeding to Sri Lanka for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM). They have chosen Rishikesh as their first destination and are going to stay 3 days in the area.

The royal couple arrived at sunset and participated in the most ancient of Indian rituals, the Ganga Aarti fire ceremony, a worship event in front of Parmath Niketan ashram, right at the banks of Ganga.

The couple took a boat from Muni-Ki-Reti to reach the Gita Bhavan landing stage near the Parmarth Ghat and were welcomed by Swami Chidanand and his leading disciple Sadhvi Bhagawati Saraswati.
