The name Haridwar evokes a sense of spirituality and faith in every soul who visits this holy land. Located by the Ganges, Haridwar is known for its evening Ganga arti that takes place every day by the river. There are numerous small shrines along the ghats and a stroll through the crowded ghats where myriad things are sold leads to Har Ki Pauri, where the arti is performed. The ghat is believed to have the foot imprints of Lord Vishnu and hence the name, Har Ki Pauri. Haridwar is one of the four locations where Kumbh mela is held and is also where River Ganga enters the plains after traversing through the mountains. Situated close to Rishikesh, Haridwar is one of the prominent pilgrim centres in India.
