Glimpse Of Garhwal
Delhi to Haridwar
On arrival in Delhi, meet our representative who will arrange your transfer to the holy city of Haridwar. Located on the banks of the holy Ganga River, Haridwar is regarded as one of the sacred cities for the followers of Hinduism. This ancient city is home to many revered Hindu shrines, such as Maya Devi Temple, Mansa Devi Temple, Bharat Mata Mandir and Chandi Devi Temple. However, the most important place of interest here is Har Ki Pauri ghat. Literally meaning ‘Steps of the Lord’, Har Ki Pauri is also famous for being the site of Kumbh Mela (held every 12 years) and Ardh Kumbh (held every six years). Every day after sunset, this site comes alive with the chanting of priests during the famous Ganga Aarti. Hordes of devotees come to this city just to witness this grand affair and pray to Goddess Ganga. Upon reaching the hotel in Haridwar, check-in and rest in your room. In the evening, proceed towards Har Ki Pauri ghat (on your own) to enjoy the aarti.
