Har ki Pauri, Haridwar

Observe Hindus perform their spiritual rituals at Har ki Pauri, on the banks of holy Ganges. See how thousands of devotees reach the end of their pilgrimage and bathe themselves in the purifying waters, a symbolic act meant to cleanse the soul. On this famous ghat (series of steps leading to the water), you can also find a large footprint on a stone wall believed to belong to the Lord Vishnu. Besides the mass bathing, many festivities (Kumbha Mela, Ardh Kumbh Mela, Vaisakhi) take place here on a regular basis..

  • Har ki pauri is a sacred place of holy river the ganga.. it's peaceful and relaxing sitting on the banks of river ganga. Taking a holy dip in it is amazing experience. Watching Ganga aarti is soulful....  more »
  • The natural beauty and the river together provide great experience at Haridwar as well as Rishikesh. The aarti at Triveni ghat in the evening was special. The enthusiasm of the tourists were also grea...  more »
  • See: a mini Benares, on the edges of a rather impetuous Ganges, for few pilgrims (you better know how to swim...) or channeled here where thousands of Hindu pilgrims permanently... Few Western tourists, which is very good, overhanging temples... However avoid photographing women taking their ritual bath, because given the crowd, we can quickly be taken to task, if one of them doesn't like it and know...

  • It is a very good place for worship, relaxation and enjoyment. You can feel greatly connected with nature here, the flow and pure water of Ganges make you feel out of this world. Also, you need to be careful while you take a bath or sit on the riverside, cause the river flow in the nearby streams is too fast and can take you away in seconds. It is place with great sceneries that give you a lifetime experience.
  • This place has great significance in Indian mythology. It is basically a ghat and a very crowded one. During the summer vacations it is filled with lacs of people roaming around. Taking their bath in the holy Ganges and buying stuff to be back home. As this place also has a great market.
  • Har Ki Pauri It is a Holy place. where the Lord Vishnu had dipped his feet in the River Ganges. It is believed if you take a dip in the River Ganges at this point sincerely your sins will be washed. But at the same time you must take a vow not to sin again. It is futile if you take dip here and again keep repeating the sins. Watching Ganga Aarti is a complete bliss. The divinity of the place is such that one can't get their eyes off. Touches your soul and calms your mind. Chaotic yet brilliantly peaceful.
  • Always crowded and pandas always behind their patrons, but this place has its own brilliant vibes. Ma Gange fills this place with divinity and faith!
  • Ganga ghat .... Area have well managed parking lot and the management of the place is good. Cleanliness is an issue here.
