Haridwar Tour

 

Haridwar is the site of many religious festivals. Most notably, once every twelve years it is the venue for the Purna Kumbh Mela, humanity's largest festival, which drew a record 70 million in 2003. (The festival rotates between Haridwar and Allahabad, Ujjain and Nashik.) The Ardh Kumbha Mela, or "half mela", is held every six years.
Har-ki-Pauri , To the north of the center, this is Haridwar's focal point, where devotees gather to bathe and worship on the Ganges. According to legend, this is where a drop of nectar fell from the churning of the oceans when the world was created, and a stone wall has Vishnu's footprint.
You may be asked to make a donation if you linger near the ghats. Beware of con artists posing as officials. If you would like to make a donation there are boxes at the center of the ghats around the light poles.

Maya Devi Mandir , located on upper road. This temple is one of the 51 "shakti peeths" and its the presiding deity of Haridwar. It is from this temple Haridwar derives its other name Mayapur.
Mansa Devi Mandir, atop a hill near the center of town. Can be reached by cable car (Rs 58 for a return ticket and Rs 210 (in dec'12) for both mansa devi and chandi devi roapway ride along with transfer between 2 temples.) or by a road that gently winds uphill (about 2 km), starting from Railway Rd. The temple is aesthetically not particularly noteworthy, but the views are grand. Expect to queue to board the cable car and once more to enter the temple: despite some rudimentary attempts at crowd control, the crowds of jostling devotees can make this a pretty intense experience.
Jain Temple, Bhupatwala, Rishikesh Road. Shri Chintamani Parswanath Jain Shwetambar Mandir. Beautiful marble work.
