Owner description: Har Ki Pauri Haridwar : Haridwar is one of the most ancient pilgrimage centers in India that has been reverence from times immemorial. Hari means (Lord/God) and Dwar means Gateway. Hence Haridwar means Gateway to the Lord. According to the India mythology, it is one of the four places where drops of elixir, Amrita accidentally spilled over from the pitcher or Kumbha, in which it was being carried away by the celestial bird Garuda, the vehicle of Lord Vishnu. These four spots have today become places where the Kumbh Mela is celebrated every 12 years in succession - Nasik, Ujjain, Haridwar and Allahabad. Millions of devotees and tourist congregate from all over the world to celebrate this celestial event and perform ritualistic bathing on the banks of the river Ganges.

I visit Haridwar atleast once a year and this place means a lot for me in terms of affection, its importance in hindi mythology. This is the main Ghat for bath near Brahmakund, where Amrit has fallen. The area is well managed by the Ganga Sabha Trust. Water is too cold and flow is fast but with one dip one can stand in the waters for hours taking holy dips, soulful feeling and watching the flow of water. Water is very neat and clean. People collect holy water from this Ghat. Nowadays police have put lot of restrictions preventing all types of vehicles to reach out the Har ki Pauri area and one has to walk a little reach the area.

Best place in India to take a holy dip in River Ganga. Serene and relaxing atmosphere around the place.

India is a country of rituals, religious and spiritualism. There are no other country in this world which can beat India. But this should be strength and not people being divided in the name of this. saw all religions people taking the holy dip!
It was fun taking Dip in Natural Bath Tub. Ya but from point of view of changing clothes little tough for females! only one changing box technically for I guess 6 females together which is way far less than the crowd thr!

There are steps to reach the river. Things are very organized there. No one was pushing anyone and there is enough place was every one. It is reasonably clean considering the number of people visiting the place and bathing there.
