Seeing the Ganga Aarti is a mesmerizing spiritual experience, as you join in the crowd to chant and witness the ceremony in person. After the prayers, the priests begin to do choreographed fire movement followed by water blessings. Thereafter, if you'd like you can join in the aarti by releasing flowers into the river while making wishes, followed by donation to the river.

From a purely religious point of you, the Aarti is spectacular. However the whole area need to been far far cleaner, with better facilities and amenities. At present it is a bit of a controlled chaos. The parking area is atrocious. Hawkers are all over the place and the area is quite dirty. A tip need to be taken from the Ganga Aarti in Varanasi.

The evening Aarti time at Har Ki Pauri was 6:30pm. We reached there around 5:30pm. This time we were on other side of Har Ki Pauri for in front view of Aarti. People were sitting on the banks, so we have to sit at least ten rows behind. Ganga Aarti was well visible from this side. I will recommend to see the Aarti from Ghanta Ghar side. We have a bath in cold holy water of Ganges before Aarti and have Tilak on the forehead.

We were there on 13th Feb 2023 and the place was horribly crowded. The visitors had turned the banks into a dirty mess. I guess its crowded always. Immediately decided to skip the ganga aarti and head to rishikesh.
In hindsight , it was a good decision as the management of the Ganga aarti venue at Risshikesh is far far better than Haridwar.

It is always awesome to be at Ganga Aarti. For all humans Ganga Aarti is most pious and auspicious event in Haridwar. Due to winters Aarti stared at 5:30pm sharp. It was not much crowded at Har ki Pauri, but still devotees throng around the Aarti place at Aarti time. We recite the Aarti, viewed it from near, have taken Aarti later. It was a mesmerizing devotional experience. Last time we came here at a festival, that was very very crowded. One should come up to one hour early to have a good seat at Aarti point.

The place is just brimming with positivity. If you have to witness, the aarti reach a little early, around 5 p.m. during winter, especially as the place tends to get very crowded. The ghats have improved a lot now compared to a few years back.

In the evening, you will find a sea of people on both sides of the aarti sthal through which the river flows. And with all the diyas lit together in the dark of the night and the flowing water with all the prayers being chanted simultaneously, the entire scene is a must-watch if you are in Haridwar.

Also, you can actually get to do the aarti as well as we did. You can speak to one of the stalls at the ghats about you wanting to do the aarti, and they shall let you do it (of course, with some donations). But the whole place is one divine experience. Additionally, there are also tons of shops and markets in case you wish to indulge in street shopping. Some of these shops date back even 100 yrs old and are worth the visit.

All in all, a beautiful and divine experience that one can get at Shri Ganga Sabha. A must-visit destination and experience in Haridwar.

It was a great and holy experience to witness the Aarti live in Har ki pauri . The choices of attending Aarti is minimal unlike in Varanasi where in you can attend afloat in Ganga staying in the boat . Crowd management is not done properly and a lot of Beggars who compell you to feed them or asking money was a bit too too much . Otherwise it’s nice as always to be part of Aarti .
