Haridwar-The Gateway to God


Haridwar located in the foothills of Himalayas is an eternal spiritual destination which is also one among the seven holiest places in India. This holy place which is rich in religious and cultural heritage is said to have been blessed by three Hindu Gods, namely Lord Shiva, Vishnu and Brahma. Har Ki Pauri, Mansa Devi, Daksha Mahadev Temple, Sapt Rishi and Maya Devi are some of the prominent pilgrim attractions of this place. Kumbh Mela, a renowned festival of Haridwar, which is conducted once in 12 years, draws millions of people who come to bath in the Ganges to cleanse their sins.
