The Holy City of Hardwar

You owe yourself to this world of pure bliss Hardwar.

Nestling at the foot of the picturesque Shiwalik Hills, Hardwar is one of the major disticts of the newly formed state of Uttaranchal. Here mother Ganga descends from the Himalayas and centres the great plains. It is also known as mayapuri, literally meaning "the door to god". Devotees feel that they can go to heaven by getting there salvation after a dip in the sacred Mother Ganges in Hardwar.

Hardwar is one of the holiest Hindu Dham where you will find yourself amidst sages and seers, where the chanting of shlokas, the magical music of the temple bells and the thousand of floating diyas on the river will turn your mind towards god as enshrined in the sacred mantras. In addition to the serenity of Hardwar is the purity of air and the invigorating  breeze blowing from the  mother ganges , filling you with peace and tranquility.

Haridwar-gateway to the four pilgrimages in the Uttrakhand region, is located on the foot hills of Shivaliks. It is on the banks of River Ganga. The Ganga leaves the mountains and enters the plains with Haridwar being the first major town on the plains. Though the Ganges does not lose its rapids completely never theless it becomes very quite and calm here.

The water is clean and people prefer taking bath on the numerous ghats built on the river shores. It is said that taking bath here purifies the soul and opens the way for the ultimate freedom, Nirvana. 

Haridwar has earned fame as being the place which has been blessed by the trinity of Lord Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma. It is also one of the major Shakti peeths. Down the ages Hardwar has purified the mind, the body and the soul.

Haridwar’s culture is naturally rooted in the religious role it plays in the life of the people. The activities revolve mainly around religious events,fairs and festivals. It is natural for an otherworldly attitude to reign in the general psychology, which strongly affects even the visitors.
