About haridwar

Surrounded by the majestic Shivalik Hills on one side and the mighty Ganges River on the other, Haridwar exudes a mysterious charm that goes further than its reputation as a renowned pilgrimage center. This holy city in Uttarakhand attracts millions of tourists and pilgrims every year. The chaotic streets and the crowded banks of the river, with throngs of people taking a dip to wash away their sins, radiate a certain energy that is hard to miss. For Hindus, Haridwar is one of the most sacred cities, home to several temples such as Chandi Devi Temple, Mansa Devi Temple, Maya Devi Temple and many more. The sacred Ghat of Har Ki Pauri is the site where the evening prayers and the much anticipated Kumbh Mela is held. The presence of thousands of diyas floating in the river, is a sight to behold.\r\n\r\nOn the other hand, the city is developing at a fast rate parallel to its religious importance, with the establishment of a number of educational and scientific institutions. Numerous yoga ashrams uphold and promote the spiritual and physical discipline of yoga. Haridwar’s contribution to the centuries old, rich and vibrant culture of India is remarkable.
