A must visit place. Always try to attend the evening Ganga aarti around 06:30 PM (Summer) and 05:00 PM (winter). You can easily find cheap hotels nearby ranging from Rs 500 to Rs 2500.

The infrastructure here is fantastic. I suppose it has to be as at certain times of day it could otherwise be catastrophic. But it really is a great place. Great chai sop nearby on the front too. And I love that the restaurants accept money to give good to the poor. A great place.

Famous place in Haridwar. We went there in June 2014 and the place was clean and not as busy as it normally is. This is also where the evening arti takes place. You have the option of seeing the arti from either side of Har Ki Pauri. You can also buy your own arti things.

It doesn't fail to enchant me. The spirituality embibed in this place moves me. The temples, the chants, the space of Ganga mata in our religion. Soul purifying.

Ganga arati is very famous and worth watching. The diyas floating in Ganga at night is a visual/spiritual treat. But you need to beware of the pandas as they trick you to pay for a lot of prayers. Do not take out your wallet here. If you give one person, the rest will not leave you.
