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
