Trip to Haridwar
Duration: 02 Night / .03 Days
The sacred Himalayan town of Haridwar represents a living lesson on Hinduism.
Located at the foot of the Shivalik Hills, the town attracts hordes of tourists
and devotees from all corners of the world. Haridwar also holds significance
because it stands as the gateway to the chardham, which includes Yamunotri,
Gangotri, Badrinath Ji and Kedarnath Ji. Haridwar finds its mention in the
ancient Hindu epics and scriptures as Mayapuri, Mokshadwar and Gangadwar.
Geographically, it is at Haridwar where the sacred Ganga enters the northern
Indian plains. During the Kumbh Mela (held at the interval of every 12 years),
the population of the town swells up to millions.
The next Kumbh Mela and the Ardh Kumbh Mela (held at every 6 years) are
scheduled to be held in Haridwar in 2010. Today, Haridwar is seen as a mystic
centre for the rejuvenation of the body, mind and soul

special evening. The temple bells roar, priests enchant mantras. Immersed in
sublimation stand the pilgrims. Cupped leaves, with saffron marigold petals and
a small candle flame, flickering ride the current of water of wisdom. Suddenly
