Hari is one of the many names of Vishnu and Dwar means doorway, hence Haridwar is the gateway to Him. Haridwar is also the gateway of four pilgrimages which once completed ensure Moksh, the release from the endless cycle of life and death. These four important and blissful pilgrimages are Gangotri, Yamunotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath. This holy city is located in the district of Haridwar in the northern state of Uttarakhand. The city is located at the bank of river Ganges. This religious place depicts Hindu and Indian culture as well as its ancient and modern civilization.

Here at the feet of the mighty himalaya, tourists and travellers get to know about various Indian mythologies and legends of ancient times and this adds a mystical and tantric edge to Haridwar. The Aarti of river Ganga during sunrise and sunset is the most eye catching and enjoyable activity of the Haridwar for which travelers travel from far and wide. Refer to the Haridwar travel guide to better understand the charm of the place and why it compels tourists to come here again and again.
