The Rishikesh Temple is an ancient temple, which is situated on a hill crescent. The temple was built about 7,000 years ago by King Amrish, who established the Amravati civilization in Mount Abu. The temple is named after King Amrish's 'Ishta Devta,' Lord Rishikesh. According to a legend, the king was successful in performing 100 'Ashwamedha Yagyas'; this made Lord Indra angry and he attacked the king. However, Lord Rishikesh was able to protect King Amrish from Lord Indra's wrath.
