Being one of the seven holiest cities in India, Haridwar emerges as the gateway to the Char Dham yatra of Uttarakhand. Millions of devotees visit this town of temples every year to take a dip in the holy river Ganga as it is believed that taking a dip in the sacred Ganga river washes away all sins. The city boasts numerous temples, ashrams, and narrow lanes.
Haridwar is highly renowned for the Ganga Aarti held at Har ki Pauri ghat every evening. Thousands of devotees worship by floating diyas in the river. The city is one of the other four cities (Allahabad, Ujjain & Nasik) to organize Kumbh Mela after every twelve years.
