Har ki Pauri, Haridwar

4.4
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.. See Har ki Pauri and all Haridwar has to offer by arranging your trip with our Haridwar travel route builder.

  • One of the Best Places in India. Mind gets relax. Heart in God. Water is very much clear. Totally Transparent. Take bath in this mineral rich water and make your body free from many impurities. Easily approachable. Request to everyone please, don't put any type of waste anyhow or in name of worship in river.
  • Good place to view the ganges and also the various religious rituals going on here. This is some what a bit dangerous place as the water flow is very rapid and the water is deep. There a quite a large number of security measures in place but still you need to be careful, if you plan on entering into the river for rituals or recreation. Must see place when visiting Haridwar. Good number of shopping options are also available.
  • Har Ki Pauri is a famous ghat on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. This revered place is the major landmark of the holy city of Haridwar. Nice place. A lot of peace here. Well maintained and well cleaned. Must visit one time there.
  • Very Nice Ghat to take the bath in HOLY GANGA RIVER… Also the temples and the market around this, are also awesome. I recommend that you must visit this ghat, if you want to wash your sins…
  • A place where god lives among humans. The moment you reach Haridwar you will sense the spirituality in air. Such a divine place. You can feel all your senses just by sitting in open air and looking around the temples, river.
