Bharat Temple, Rishikesh - Bharat Mandir

Bharat Temple at Rishikesh is dedicated to Hindu God Vishnu and is named after Bharat, the younger brother of Sri Ram. This is one of the oldest temples in Rishikesh and is located at the Triveni Ghat on the banks of Ganga River. Adi Shankaracharya is believed to have installed the murti here.

Legend has it that Vishnu gave darshan to Sage Raibhya here. It is also believed that Bharat and Shatrugna meditated on the spot. The temple was visited by Pandavas who were on their final journey to the Himalayas.
Although the temple is dedicated to Vishnu, there are murtis of Shiva.
The main murti of Vishnu worshipped in the temple is carved out from a single Shaligram.
Another highlight in the temple is a Shri Yantra believed to have been installed by Adi Shankaracharya.
