Create an itinerary including Har ki Pauri
Observe Hindus perform their spiritual rituals at Har ki Pauri, on the banks of holy Ganges. See how thousands of devotees reach the end of their pilgrimage and bathe themselves in the purifying waters, a symbolic act meant to cleanse the soul. On this famous ghat (series of steps leading to the water), you can also find a large footprint on a stone wall believed to belong to the Lord Vishnu. Besides the mass bathing, many festivities (Kumbha Mela, Ardh Kumbh Mela, Vaisakhi) take place here on a regular basis.. See Har ki Pauri and all Haridwar has to offer by arranging your trip with our Haridwar travel route builder.

  • Very crowded but spiritual place for different religion.
  • Loved it.. Now the arrangements and development around all over the ghats are good. And safety is also kept in mind by installing Railing and chains so that nobody goes in deep water. Even changing rooms of steel sheet are made for Females good. Just we all need to keep the place clean and tidy.
