Gateway to Gods

An ancient city on the banks of the Ganges, Haridwar has been an important Hindu pilgrimage center since time immemorial. Hosting religious festivities year-round, Haridwar tourism thrives with huge numbers of devotees. On a tour of Haridwar you can visit a temple with a sweeping view of the city, and take a footbridge to a famous ghat to observe the city from water. A large number of shops and bazaars across the city sell items of devotion and inexpensive ornaments, while a nearby bird sanctuary and a green dam area provide nice picnicking spots. The city has a yoga institute and a number of Hindu-based religious institutions. Haridwar is in Haridwar District.
