Mumbai: Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) has announced the opening of Anand Kashi By The Ganges - IHCL SeleQtions hotel in Rishikesh.
Nestled between the majestic Himalayan mountains and the banks of the pristine waters of the holy Ganges, it was the erstwhile residence of the Maharaja of Tehri Garhwal.
IHCL Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Puneet Chhatwal said, “Known as the Yoga Capital of the world, Rishikesh is an eclectic mix of culture and adventure, attracting tourists from around the world for decades. Strengthening its presence with the addition of Anand Kashi, IHCL will now offer two distinct hotels in the pilgrim town.”

The flexible conference rooms are perfectly equipped for intimate business meetings and conferences.
