The erstwhile capital of the Tehri Garhwal kings, Narendra Nagar is 15 km north of Rishikesh
. This historical town is located in Tehri Garhwal District
and was a witness to many events in history, which has left its mark on the town. The town was built by King Tehri Narendra Singh and it takes its name after him.
The Royal Palace, closed to the public, is a quite pretty sight here. The resort and spa, called Ananda In The Himalayas, is a major draw. This structure was made in 1905 by Lord Irving. Nothing has changed of that era and the furniture and books all remain the same.
The place also offers magnificent views of Rishikesh and the plains of Haridwar. The sun set view from Narendra Nagar is another intersting aspect.
Nearest airport is at Dehradun (42 km). Rishikesh Railway Station is the nearest railhead.
