Regarded as one of the most scared Ghats in Haridwar and India, Har-Ki-Pauri is visited by devotees and visitors in large number seeking the blessings of Holy Ganga by offering their prayers. It is the place where River Ganga flowing through the Himalayas touches the plain for the first time and that those who take a dip in River Ganga can wash off all their sins. According to the history, the place has a mark of Lord Vishnu’s footprint on a stone which is even present today. This is why, it is believed that Lord Shiva visited Har ki Pauri during the Vedic period. Constructed by King Vikramaditya in memory of his brother Bhartrihari, who it is believed had come to Haridwar to meditate on the banks of the Ganga, this sacred Ghat is an enchanting sight to behold with a plethora of temples at the river bank and golden hues of floral diyas floating in the river. The chanting of mantras and prayers with sages meditating exudes spiritual vibes and is an experience of a lifetime. The sound of gongs in the background takes one to an entirely different world.
