One of the holiest sites in Haridwar, Har Ki Pauri attracts millions of Hindu devotees from almost every corner of the globe. It is the place where most of saints head to when they want to attain nirvana (the state of eternal happiness). Located in the foot of the Garhwal Himalayas, Har Ki Pauri remains packed with devotees and tourists all round the year. However, the glory of this holy temple as well as a revered Ganga Ghat is at its height during the Kumbh Mela season in the holy town of Haridwar.
The Har Ki Pauri temple carries even more significance, because it
preserves the footprints of Lord Shiva even to this day. The scene at
the Ganges ghats can itself stir your soul and immerse you in the ocean
of devotion. The entire ghat remains lined with saints, rishihs and
Vedic chants and the sound of temple bells reverberate throughout the day. The atmosphere of piousness becomes even stronger as evening falls. If you want to experience the true glory of this sacred place, you should pay a visit to this temple at the twilight. It is at this time that Ganga Aarti is performed at the ghat of Ganges at Har Ki Pauri. The Ganga Aarti attracts an equal number of devotees and tourists from far and wide.
