Attractions In haridwar

Attractions in Haridwar

The holy city of Haridwar needs no introduction as it has been luring visitors not only from India, but from all parts of the world from time immemorial. Hordes of devotees come here on a pilgrimage, while tourists come here to experience how grand the religion, which binds millions together, is. Immense solitude and a significant number of old shrines are among the primary reasons Haridwar packages are so popular. When you plan a tour, remember to include the below-mentioned places of interest in your itinerary.

Har Ki Pauri

Most of those who come to Haridwar do so to visit Har Ki Pauri, the city’s holiest site and primary attraction. Situated on the banks of the revered Ganga River, it is a bathing spot, where people converge in thousands. The spot is believed to contain the footmark of Lord Vishnu, making it sacred. You can take a dip in the river at the site and attend the evening Ganga aarti to feel a sense of calmness. Har Ki Pauri sees the highest gathering during Kumbh and Ardh Kumbh fairs.

Temples

Though the city is dotted with many temples, one of the must visit is Bharat Mata Temple because of its uniqueness. It is not dedicated to a Hindu deity, rather to Bharat Mata, the personification of India. The eight-storey building has shrines dedicated to Mother India, freedom fighters, woman achievers, saints from various faiths, Goddess Shakti, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Another religious site to visit with India tour packages in Haridwar is Chandi Devi Mandir. Due to its hilltop location, it also serves as a popular trekking spot. You can also visit Mansa Devi Temple, which again requires a short but scenic trek through the hills. The temple, also reachable by ropeway, offers scenic views of the city.

Another amazing temple here is Pawan Dham, which is known for its intricate glasswork. The shrine houses wall mosaics, chariots of various deities and images of religious symbols, all made of coloured glass. Daksha Mahadev Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, is yet another shrine which sees a high footfall, especially in the Hindu month of Saavan.

Other Religious Sites

Temples are not the only religious sites that the people of Haridwar and those from outside visit. You can see Parad Shivling, which is a 150-kg idol of Lord Shiva, made of mercury. Near it is a rudraksha tree; rudraksha has high significance among the devotees of Lord Shiva. Gau Ghat is also a revered spot as it is dedicated to cows, the holiest animal in Hinduism. Bhimgoda Kund is a water tank, believed to be dug by the Pandava Bhima. An altar, known as Sati Kund, is said to be the site where Goddess Sati immolated herself following the insult dealt with Lord Shiva by her father.

Ashrams

The other reason people come to Haridwar is to relax their body, mind and soul with yoga and meditation. That is why ashrams have become an integral part of the culture of Haridwar, and you must visit at least one. A lot of ashrams are located on the riverbank so guests can wake up to the sound of flowing water. Many such places have private banks or ghats, where yoga and meditation sessions are organised every morning. The day at most ashrams starts with Surya Namaskar, a series of 12 asanas, dedicated to the Sun God. Apart from these activities, you can also attend spiritual teachings, prayer ceremonies and learn about the life of saints. At such institutions, tourists live a simple life, promoted by many spiritual leaders.

Many ashrams are said to be established on the meditation sites of sages mentioned in Hindu myths. Kanva Rishi Ashram is believed to be located at the site, where Sage Kanva meditated. Similarly, the spot where Saptarishi Ashram is said to have been used by the seven great sages. Other such renowned institutions in the city are Ramanand Ashram, Anandamayi Ma Ashram, Shantikunj and Jairam Ashram.

Nature Retreats

Visiting Haridwar is not only about religion and spirituality; the city has lots for nature lovers too. You can visit Rajaji National Park, just 40 km away, to see tigers, striped hyenas, leopards, golden jackals, sambar deer, gorals, Asiatic black bears, barking deer, boars and elephants. Among the birds, you can see here are vultures, eagles, hawks, owls, parrots, geese, ducks, pochards and woodpeckers. If you want to see birds, then you can also visit Neel Dhara Pakshi Vihar, where Siberian cranes come during winters.

These attractions have given Haridwar a special place in India tourism by attracting travellers from around the globe.
