Har Ki Pauri, Haridwar (Uttarakhand)

Har Ki Pauri is a very famous ghat which is situated on the bank of the river Ganges in Haridwar in the Indian state of Haridwar. It is regarded as an acclaimed landmark in the holy city of Haridwar. The words “Har” means Lord Shiva, “Ki” means of and “Pauri” means footsteps which literally translate to footsteps of the Lord. It is believed that Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu have visited the Brahma Kund in Har Ki Pauri Haridwar in the Vedic times.

Ganga Aarti is held in Haridwar every day. Har Ki Pauri Aarti timings vary in summer and winter seasons. Morning Aarti timings are 5 am in summer and 7 am in winter. Evening Ganga Aarti timings in Haridwar are 5:30 pm in winter and 7 pm in summer.

There is a large footprint engraved on the stone wall which is believed to belong to Lord Vishnu. Har Ki Pauri is regarded as the exit point of the river Ganges from the mountains and entry into the plains. Har Ki Pauri Haridwar is a focal point for thousands of pilgrims where are festivities are commenced during the Kumbh Mela which takes place every twelve years and Ardh Kumbh Mela which takes place every six years.

There is an area enclosed within the Har Ki Pauri known as Brahma Kund which is believed to be the precise spot where few drops of nectar (amrita) had fallen from the sky from a pitcher while being carried by the celestial bird Garuda. Priests conduct Ganga aarti each evening during sunset which is famously known as Har Ki Pauri Aarti where a large number of people gather on both the banks of river Ganga to sing praises of the Lord. The priests hold fire bowls in their hands and start chanting prayers while the gongs of the temple keep ringing.

Har Ki Pauri History

King Vikramaditya constructed this sacred place in the memory of his brother Bhatri Hari who is believed to visit the ghats to meditate. This ghat later came to be known as Har Ki Pauri. In evening the sight of the floral diyas and colorful hues of the sunset makes it an astonishing sight.

Everyday Har Ki Pauri witnesses thousands of people from far away places to pay homage to this sacred site and bathe in the holy river. Due to the high sacrament of this place and the breathtaking view, Har Ki Pauri is regarded as one of the most visited religious places all over the world.

Significance of Har ki Pauri

Har ki Pauri is a sacred ghat of the Ganges where saints, priests, and devotees come to get rid off all their sins. It is believed that the Ganges at Har ki Pauri has some sacred powers which are believed to remove all the sins of a person taking a dip in the holy waters of Ganga at Har ki Pauri Ghat. People also come here to perform the last rites and rituals of a dead person.
