Haridwar at Night

VN:R_U [1.9.20_1166]

Haridwar(Hardwar), literally means ‘The gateway to the Gods’. It’s the place where the river Ganga descends to the plain. The place is believed to have sanctified by the powerful trinity of Hindu mythology – Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. This is why the place has been an ever-refreshing mystic venue for the purification of the mind, body and soul. Haridwar is one of the most religious towns in Uttarakhand state that also hosts the famous ‘Maha Aarti’, every evening. “Har Ki Pauri” is considered to be the most pious ghat of Ganga in Uttarakhand. Haridwar is also one of the four venues of the famous Kumbh Mela. During this festival, an estimated 45 million people converge here to bathe in the sacred waters of the Ganges as part of a purification ritual.
