  • Ganga aarti at Har Ki Pauri Ghat starts at 6:00 pm but one needs be there before 5:00 as people use to come early to get the seat of their choice so that they can properly view the aarti

  • 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
