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.

The place is clean, spotlessly so. The ganga flowing by is peaceful and stormy at the same time. Avoid the touts and there are many of them around.

I will suggest go for gau ghat or shiv ghat for holy bath as it has clean water, where as har ki pauri is little polluted.

A really beautiful place which is filled with serenity and peacefulness. There are 100’s of people around but at the Arti time they all sit in silence and listen to priests chanting a age old ritual. Beware of pickpockets.
