Har Ki Pauri Haridwar in Haridwar
Har Ki Pauri the most sacred Ghat of Haridwar where Ganga Mandir and Haricharan Mandir are also situated. It is believed to be the same place where the drop of divine nectar (Amrut) fell from the Kumbh while being carried by the celestial bird Garuda. So after every twelve years, the auspicious Kumbh mela is organized at this place. Large numbers of tourists throng the place in evening so as to attend the famous Ganga Aarti.
An imprint of holy foot of Lord Vishnu(Hari) is present on one of the stones of this ghat so it was given the name Har-ki-Pauri.
A dip in the holy Ganga river at this Ghat is a must for all visitors without which your visit to Haridwar is not complete. Thousands of Pilgrims take the dip every day here which is believed to relive a person from all sins and a passage to the path of Moksha. The ghat is also the place where most of the Hindu rituals are performed.
