Overview

Har Ki Pauri Haridwar : Haridwar is one of the most ancient pilgrimage centers in India that has been reverence from times immemorial. Hari means (Lord/God) and Dwar means Gateway. Hence Haridwar means Gateway to the Lord. According to the India mythology, it is one of the four places where drops of elixir, Amrita accidentally spilled over from the pitcher or Kumbha, in which it was being carried away by the celestial bird Garuda, the vehicle of Lord Vishnu. These four spots have today become places where the Kumbh Mela is celebrated every 12 years in succession - Nasik, Ujjain, Haridwar and Allahabad. Millions of devotees and tourist congregate from all over the world to celebrate this celestial event and perform ritualistic bathing on the banks of the river Ganges.

It will give so soothing experience to watch the Ganges flow just beneath you. It is a must visit in Haridwar. It is quite close from the railway station. Auto will charge just Rs.10 to reach you there, else a walk will also do.

We went to Har Ki Pauri on Mauni Amavasya which caused the place to be extremely crowded. Despite that the place was well managed and once the Arti started it was extremely energizing. The place is also fairly well maintained.
