If you intend to begin your sacred journey to India, Haridwar is an apt place being the gateway to the four pilgrimages of Uttaranchal. It is also your starting point on the journey to the sacred Ganga and the Yamuna. As the legend goes, Prince Bhagirath performed penance here to salvage the souls of his ancestors. Even today you can witness the same in its vicinities. As we ponder on the age-old tradition, we find the Har-ki-Pauri of Haridwar offering the ever-refreshing mystic venue for the purification of the mind, body and soul.
Sanctify yourself in Ganges: Pure your mind, body and soul as you take a dip in river Ganges, one of the most sacred rivers of India. Haridwar is indeed an abode of the weary in body, mind, and spirit. It goes even beyond than that as it serves an attraction for many, for learning the arts, science, and culture. Getting there in its vicinities is to expose oneself to bountiful of sacredness, which is indeed the hallmark of India.
Do You Know ? The glorious Kumbh Mela is said to attract the Gods, who left their footprints on the land of Haridwar.
