Located along the Ganga Canal, Roorkee is a small town in Haridwar District of the north Indian state of Uttarakhand.

The city has its own railway station called Roorkee City Station while the nearest airport is located in Dehradun, the Jolly Grant Airport. However, Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGI) in Delhi, located at a distance of 200 km, is the most preferred air gateway for national and international travellers planning a Roorkee tour.
