Haridwar, ‘Gateway to the Gods’, is an ancient city and important Hindu pilgrimage site. Located in Uttarakhand in northern India, it’s the point where the River Ganges leaves the Himalayan foothills. Hari Ki Pauri is the largest of several sacred ghats, and every evening, a Ganga Aarti is hosted here. The Ganga Aarti is a river-worshipping ceremony in which tiny oil lamps are floated off the steps, amidst the chanting of Vedic hymns. In the evening twilight, the golden reflection of floral diyas is an enchanting sight. Haridwar is also a gateway for three important pilgrimages of Uttarakhand… Rishikesh, Badrinath and Kedarnath. Devotees believe that a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges can wash away sins forever. Atop Bilwa Parvat is the Mansadevi Temple, the perfect spot to enjoy a panoramic view of Haridwar, the Ganges, and the surrounding countryside.
