The Pilgrimmage
Adoration of the Ganges, Haridwar Haridwar located in the foothills of the Shivalik, represents the point where the Ganga reaches the plains. It is famous for being blessed by trinity of Lord Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma. The name Haridwar (Hardwar) has been derived from two words, 'Har' means Shiva (the deity of Kedarnath), 'Hari' means Vishnu (the deity of Badrinath), and Dwar means gate. Haridwar is thus the gateway to the two holy shrines of Shiva and Vishnu in Badrinath and Kedarnath, respectively.

All Hindu festivals are celebrated with utmost fervor and brilliance in Haridwar. But the most important among all festivities and fairs of Haridwar is the Kumbh Mela. Apart from Kumbh, Ardh Kumb Mela is also held here,every six years.
