Har Ki Pauri (Ganga Ghat, Maya Puri) Haridwar Journey with Pictures

Har Ki Pauri (Ganga Ghat, Maya Puri) Haridwar

As a Hindu, you get many chances to visit this place because it is associated with the last rituals of a person. So every year millions of Hindus from across India visit Har ki Pauri (Ganga Ghats). I have visited this place many times. It is mandatory in Hindus to put the last remaining of a person in Ganga at this place. I did this for my Father, mother, aunt, and Dadiji. Nowadays I have seen lots of improvement in these areas and surroundings. The current government is working hard to make this place and city clean and convenient for the devotees.

In these pictures, we can see the beauty of the holiest place of India Har Ki Pauri, Haridwar. Not only for last rituals but people also come here every day from all parts of India to pay homage to the river Ganga because river Ganga is believed to be the holiest river following in India. Scientific studies have also found that the water of the Ganga river is very healthy because of the presence of many types of minerals. Even the Mughal emperors like Abhar were drinking only the water of Ganga. Har Ke Pauri or Hari-Ki-Pauri (Haridwar, India) has great significance as it is supposed to clean all bad effects of misdeeds done by a person. Therefore every Hindu tries to take bath here for at least once in his life. The water of Ganga here is believed to have mysterious powers and it remains fresh for years if taken home in a bottle.

Every day thousands of people take baths at Hari-Ki-Pauri or Har Ki Pauri to reduce or nullify their sins. It is supposed that all sins of a person end after taking bath in Ganga at Har Ki Pauri. The whole of India can be seen taking bath at Har-Ki-Pauri. After the death of any person, his ashes and remaining parts of the burned body are submerged with Ganga at this place. It is a custom in Hindu society to do this. All these events make Har-Ki-Pauri a major pilgrim destination for Hindu's living around the world. In India, people treat Ganga as a sacred and mother river that has divine power to free people from their sins.

Most of the year, this place remains busy with people and we can find people from across India at a single place. If any person wants to see the whole of India then he can find a glimpse of India at this place. Due to its importance, this place is associated with your memories always. The only bad point about this place is the high price asked by the priests which need to be controlled and prices need to be fixed. So it should not make a problem for people.

The government also needs to clear this place from the agents and people who try to fool innocent people by taking them to expensive hotels or to priests who charge a high amount of money.

To Shimla by Nalagarh-Ramshehar-Kunihar (Pics of Beautiful Scenery on the Way and my Experience)

I always love to travel by the roads less travelled because by doing so I get a chance to see things which are still hidden from the most of people. On my single day journey to Shimla from Ropar (Punjab) for some work, I decided to travel on the State Highway 16 by following the route Nalagarh-Ramshehar-Kunihar instead of going through the National Highway (NH) 5. Not only this route was shorter by 40 KMs, but I was also expecting some adventure on the way. This journey become a quite exciting and thrilling because I was travelling on this route in the month of July on a rainy day. Though, I was aware that this is a single road and I may face landslides if rain continued. Still, I was ready for the adventure and I started my journey early in the morning on Tata Indigo eCS. Till nalagarh, I faced heavy rain but rain slowed down as I crossed Nalagarh. The weather was very fine and it was drizzling throughout the journey.

My Journey to Masroor Rock Cut Temples (Kangra, Himachal Pradesh) with Pictures and Review

In this post, I am going to share the experience of my recent visit to famous Rock Cut Temples in Masroor Village of Kangra district in Himachal Pradesh. This village is about 38 KM away from Kangra Town and here we can see 15 rock-cut temples in Indo-Aryan style. I came to know about this place through the pictures of a friend on Facebook. This place looked very attractive in pictures so I decided to visit this place. I took the route through Dehra town situated at the bank of Beas river. The disadvantage of taking this route is poor road conditions. It is around 35 KM from Dehra. After a journey of one hour from Dehra, I reached the Masroor Rock Cut Temple site. When you reach the temple site, then you first see the backside of the temples.                                                          Masroor Rock Cut Temples The first view of Temples is very refreshing and I started exploring this place. In front of the Masroor Rock cut temples, we can see a small pond

Historical Shakti Devi Wooden Temple Read in Hindi My visit to Bharmour in Chamba was filled with lots of excitement and thrill because of the tough terrain and narrow roads. The most difficult drive was to reach Chhatrari to see the Historical Shakti Devi Temple. Chhatrari village is situated 40 KM from Chamba (HP) on the Chamba-Bharmour Road. I decided to visit this place on the return journey from Bharmour. The road to Chhatrari is a steep ascend and you need to be very cautious while driving on this road.

The temple is situated at a distance from where the road ends and you need to travel through the village to see the temple.
