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.

This is the holy place where you can take a dip in the Holy Ganga. There are many spots where you can have a dip and ensure that you carry towels and other stuff. Be wary of the priests .

A bit crowded and a little commercial in nature. Be prepared to come across people who bother you for donations and shopkeepers who insist that you feed the poor. But minus these, it is a good place. Much cleaner now.
