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.

Recently, I stayed in one of guest houses run by TTD (Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanams) in Tirumala.

High Definition Beautiful Pictures of Khajjiar (Lake and ground) Chamba

  There will be hardly any person in India who have not heard about the beauty of Khajjiar. Due to its beauty, Khajjiar is also referred to as the mini Switzerland of India. Every year millions of Indian and foreign tourists visit this place. Some stay at this place for a few hours while others stay for one to two days.  Khajjiar comes in the Chamba circuit of tourism in Himachal Pradesh and it is one of the most visited places in Himachal Pradesh. In the Chamba circuit, I have already covered the Historical Shakti Devi Wooden Temple Chhatrari . In my review, Khajjiar is definitely a great place to visit and spent some quality time. However, I will advise you to avoid this place during the peak tourist season because you may find yourself crowded with tourists.  I was lucky to have found some free space for myself during my visit. Khajjiar is a very big green grass ground with a small lake that is surrounded by tall deodar trees. Because of the high altitude location, the weather rem

My Visit to Baudi Sahib Temple and Sarovar (Behrari, Kathgarh, Punjab)

Main Temple  In India, we can find many hidden places with lots of tourism potential but due to no promotion may places remain hidden from eyes of most of the people. One of such beautiful and peaceful place is Baudi Sahib which is famous in the local area for its Baudi (Sarovar). This Sarovar is believed to be very holy and on the festival or auspicious days, many people came here to take dip its waters. The main thing which stops you from reaching this place is the bad road which even becomes worse in the rainy season. To reach Baudi Sahib, you first need to reach Kathgrah, a small town near Ropar. After reaching Kathgrah, you can find two roads to reach Baudi Sahib. Baudi Sahib is around 8 KM away from the main Phagwara-Mohali highway. Here we can find dera of Baba Sarwan Das and present Mahant of the dera takes care of this place. With the efforts of the current Mahant, a big complex and temple have been constructed at this place. All devotees or visitors who visit thi

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
