Religious Site
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.. Plan to visit Har ki Pauri and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Haridwar attractions using our Haridwar tourist route planner.

  • Divine place for Hindus. The place is usually crowded during daytime. If you want some peaceful time then make sure to visit this place during nights. View of Ganges is also spectacular. Bathing experience in Ganges is also awesome because of the cold temperature of water even during the summers.
