Being a revered holy destination, Haridwar is known for temples and pious river Ganges. It is said that if you take a dip in the river, you wash away all your sins and you are left with a very peaceful feeling. This sacred river is said to purify the entire country, and is highly revered, so much so that devotees who visit Haridwar make sure to carry home jerry cans of river water to keep at home. This city is visited by devotees from the whole country, and during the important fairs and festivals tourists from all over the world collect here to take part in the festivities.

Out of many Haridwar Sightseeing Places, Har Ki Pauri is one of the most loved places. It is a ghat (a sort of river bank that has been fashioned into a sitting and bathing area) where people come to take a dip in the holy river. You find utmost peace after getting drenched into the river. Friends, families, couples, and people of all ages come to this place. One of the things that people love about being here is the evening Aarti that has thousands of people around who float earthen lamps in the river. The view that you get seeing thousands of lamps floating is a mesmerizing one, with the twinkling lamps lighting up the river for miles to see.
