It is therefore one of the four venues where the Kumbh Mela – said to the largest congregation of humanity anywhere in the world – is held once every 12 years. Haridwar is also the place where the river Ganga enters the Indo-Gangetic plains for the first time. Haridwar is also home to several ashrams which specialize in teaching meditation and yoga.
Sights to See
Daksh Mahadev Temple and Sati Kund
The temple and the kund are located at Kankhal, which is one of the five sacred places (Panch Tirthas) around Haridwar. The other four are Ganga, Kushwart, Bilwa Tirth and Neel Parvat. The ancient temple of Daksha Mahadev stands in the south Kankhal town. Mythology has it that the King Daksh Prajapati, father of Sati (Lord Shiva’s first wife) performed yagya at this place, but didn’t invite Lord Shiva (Mahadev). Feeling insulted, Sati burnt herself in the yagya kund. Provoked by this, the ganas (followers) of Lord Shiva killed King Daksha. Later Lord Shiva brought him back to life.
Bharat Mata Mandir
This eight-storeyed temple houses icons of all Hindu gods and goddesses besides the statues of heroes and great men of India.
A panoramic view of Haridwar can be enjoyed from this temple. The Chandi Devi temple at the top of Neel Parvat on river Ganga’s banks was built in 1929 AD by the King of Kashmir, Suchat Singh. A 3 km trek from Chandighat, is the site where it is believed that the main statue was established by the Adi Shankaracharya in 8th century AD. It is at a distance of 6 km on Neel Parvat on the other bank of River Ganga.
Har-Ki-Pauri is the most important ghat on the river Ganga at Haridwar. A holy dip here is a must for a devotee. The Ganga Arti performed every evening here is a spectacular sight when thousands of lighted lamps are set afloat on the river. King Vikramaditya constructed this sacred ghat in memory of his brother Bhartrihari who it is believed had come to Haridwar to meditate on the banks of the Ganga. This ghat later came to be known as Har-Ki-Pauri (also called Brahmakund). At twilight, golden hues of floral diyas reflected in the river Ganga present the most enchanting sight. The ghat is regarded the most sacred and auspicious point to bathe in the Ganga during the Kumbh held after 12 years and Ardh Kumbh after six years.
