  • Good for collecting Holy Ganga water. Beautiful arati at Har Ka Pur. Avoid people who are too helful. They are touts who offer pooja for as little as Rs 10 and then increase their prices

  • this place is just amzing on harki pauri it is the place where ganga's arti is done by the pujaris of there ..and so spiritual place i ve ever seen at the arti time. i had very religious experience there ....must see
  • This is one of the best spiritual happening one can experience on the banks of ganges. During the evening between 6 to 6.45 pm everyday, this aarthi happens. The ganga aarthi at haridwar is very unique and a real treat to your eyes. Its crowded but amazing.
  • Har har Gange , Bhado ki Somti Amabas ka Ashnan 1/9/16
  • It's a lifetime unforgettable memory. Very enchanting. Generally Aarti starts from 6pm during winter and 7pm during summer. One may offer ₹10 to as much possible, to Ganga Aarti Committee. Persons roam on ghat and will issue proper receipt. During the Aarti songs and chorus will feel pleasant.
  • great experience jai ganga maiya
