The Ganga aarti is offered to the River Ganga everyday at sunset. Several Lamps or Diyas are lit and prayers are chanted as an offering. The ceremony lasts for approximately half an hour. You can sit comfortably on both sides of the riverside and watch...More

Haridwar Ganga Aarti is only at one place, so gets very crowded. Be aware of so called priests soliciting for puja etc & working on your emotions to various rituals & exploiting. We enjoyed the AARTI at Rishikesh at Parmarth ashram more than Haridwar or...More

Nothing that hasn't been said. Everyone comes to Haridwar for the Ganges. To go one up, do stay for the evening Aarti. It can't be explained, only experienced.

Great energy, experience. Sitting on Ganges banks for Aarti (at dusk) is a different level of experience. A lot of crowd was managed very well. Need to reach early to find a good viewing spot

breadth-taking view of the ganga flowing and the waters glowing by the reflection of the aarti deeps is breadth-taking with the chanting of ganga arti reverberating all around is just too good to resist.

The one thing you must do when in Haridwar. It's all part of the pilgrim experience. Thousands of people attend and the atmosphere is extraordinary.
