Places to visit in Haridwar

When thinking about places to see in Haridwar, some of the best options include the River Ganges and the nearby temples. 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.

For some people coming to Haridwar is like a pilgrimage, what with its reputation of having the maximum number of temples in the vicinity. In fact, there is a plethora of places to see in Haridwar, and not all of them are religious. There are monuments, river banks, markets and more to visit here. You should have a list of best places to visit in Haridwar so that you can plan the itinerary well.

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. If you find yourself at Har ki Pauri for the evening aarti, make sure to be seated on one of the front steps so that you can see the entire process clearly, since it does get very crowded.

One of the other most famous places in Haridwar includes the Chandi Devi Temple. To reach it devotees need to complete a trek of three kilometers or take the cable car. The trek is not a very hard one, and devotees like to test their faith by reaching it on foot. As per the mythology, it is known to be a place where Goddess Chandi killed Chanda-Munda. The view of the beautiful surroundings from Neel Parvat is also marvelous, so make sure to visit if time permits.

    Guptasubhi's 3 days trip to Haridwar

    Everything seemed to be good in the package when we went for it but when it came to matching the services with the amount you pay,it wasn't worth it.The hotel we were provided was stinky and untidy(though when told they cleaned it up).The kettles and cups were not for those people who would prefer hygiene over anything.Only good thing about the hotel was a scenic view and that is why we compromised.Second day ,the package included four places which were not even known to the driver as well as the local people.When contacted the travel agent,they kept on giving promises that we are talking to aur seniors,our agents and to no end we were dropped at the hotel only after visiting 2 places of the package for that day.If you are booking a package please confirm the places which they included as it may only be the icing on the cake.

    Surbhi Saurabh

    Kolkata

    Surbhi's 4 days trip to Haridwar

    I had my trip booked by Krishna Holidays for Haridwar, Musoorie and Rishikesh. Services were good in the hotel except in Mussorie where i had to pay 2000 rs extra for having room heater in the rooms. Also this information was not told to me before so it came as a shock. Toilet was stinking bad, even after changing the rooms the situation was same. Whole night we had to keep exhaust fan running so that the room does not smell bad. Food was however good. No guide was provided for the trip and the driver was very rude and arrogant.. Most of the times he would not talk properly . None of the information about the places he said, he would just park the car and will ask to go and see the place by ourselves. No body was checking through out the trip. If we have some issue then i had to call my travel agent . She was helpful after reporting the issue but it would have been great if she was in constant touch keeping a track if everything is going well. Overall i would say my experience was not that great. the service could have been much better.

    Mumbai

    Prathmesh's 5 days trip to Haridwar

    Hotels were great. As I expected. Food was good. Can driver was not aware of the route from Delhi to nainital. I was guiding him throughout the route. And at times he was not even listening to me. That resulted in slight delay. Agent was helpful throughout the trip. Only cons was we were not able to visit the said zones in jungle safari. Instead we were taken to a nature zone. Overall trip was good. Could have more better. Chilled nainital. Yummy food. Horse riding, and many more

Agents were also able to get us the good deals for hotels and rafting. We had a very good experience. Highly recommended Place and Agents!

    FAQ's of Haridwar

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    Road conditions in Haridwar remain mostly unaffected even in the Monsoons travelling in the day or even at night. However, the roads get overcrowded during the Kanwariya season in Haridwar.

    It is scorching hot during summers and very chilly in the winters. So ideal time for one to visit is February-April and August-November.

    Haridwar is a holy place with numerous temples. Among them, Mansa Devi Temple, Bharat Mata Temple, Chandi Devi Temple and Maya Devi Temple are some of the most visited ones.

    Yes, you can definitely witness Ganga Aarti that happens in Har ki Pauri two times a day. The timings of the aarti depend on the sunrise and the sunset each day. While morning aarti is not so famous, the evening aarti is prefered by the tourists as it gives a phenomenal visual effect.

     

     

    Rishikesh, Dehradun and Mussoorie are some of the nearby places one can visit while on his/her tour in Haridwar.

    Albeit, it is safe to travel to Haridwar from Delhi by car during the night, it can be a little difficult for people driving to the town for the first time. For, post Muzzaffarnagar, the highway is not really easy to navigate through.
