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.

    Vrushali's 8 days trip to Haridwar

    It was our bad luck that due to whether conditions we were not able to visit munsiyari. hotel and food were good however the driver was not good. He was good in driving but he was very rude and was talking continuously on phone . In mukhteshwar the car stop 4km before our hotel due to snow as it was not able to climb up but in the morning most of the other cars were able to climb up but the driver was very arrogant and said that it won't climb up and we had to travel ourself towards the car.

    Chandan's 6 days trip to Haridwar

    Our trip to Uttarakhand was very good. It was arranged by Mr Deepak, he booked all the hotels rooms, river rafting in Rishikesh and Jim Corbett safari. Whatever he communicated he was able to deliver it, but we had cab break down initially. Later he arranged a new cab and gave a good driver. I would recommend this travel agent as he is very kind and very responsive to your questions. Service is very good. One suggestions would be to give better cabs which are in running conditions and also communicate with the tourists about which place that are planned on daily basis.

    Aman Gupta

    Kolkata

    Aman's 5 days trip to Haridwar

    Trip was totally mis organized. Hotel option given was too far from sight seeing in dhanualti. After prior addition of cake for my wife birthday the cake was not provided. Tried to call the agent alloted he was busy sleeping. Till date i havent rec'd a call from his side. Driver didn't had any clue about the itinerary. He said he is just been alloted the duty for 5 days thats it. He will go wherever i say. After we reached dhanulti we see that the property booked is another 60km far. Whole day was wasted in a drive only not a single sightseeing was done in dhanaulti. Hotel haut monde was pethitic in service wise. I requested for change of heater in room 4 time non of the time any person from the hotel show up and the agent was busy sleeping as i mentioned. Every hotel asked me for the payment done receipt why will i show them the receipt. This shows that there is no communication between agent side and hotel.

    Vritijain's 4 days trip to Haridwar

    The trip was quiet nicely planned. And we got the hotel of our choice which has a fantastic view. We enjoyed our stay and they gave what they had mentioned in the details. So all in all a good one. The skiing we did was quiet the fun part and going to the top via chair car was one hell of a view. Auli is quiet the beauty of snow.
