About Hari Ki Pauri, Haridwar
Experience the sanctity and peace of this spiritual destination on the banks of river Ganges. Hari-ki-Pauri is one of the most holy places in India and devotees from all over the country rush here to take a dip and wash out all the sins in the sacred waters of river Ganga.
It is here that the Ganga leaves the mountain ranges and enters the plains. It is believed that Lord Vishnu- one of the three prime deities of Hindu religion ascended here for the first time. The temple still hosts the foot marks of Vishnu which are worshipped daily in great pomp.
The structure of Brahmakunda is built by King Vikramaditya in 1st century BC to commemorate his loving brother Bhatrihari and is the venue for Kumbh mela held annually as a mean to salvation.
The ultimate devout experience is the Aarti, which is a tradition that takes place after every sun down filling the air with holiness and tranquility. The water shimmers with hundreds of earthen lamps with flowers and light that are set in by the devotees.
This is one place in Haridwar that will leave you affected.
