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.

Beautiful Mahakaleshwar Pandoi Devta ji Temple at Pandoa (Shimla)

 You are aware of my road trip on the stretch Nalagrah-Ramshehr-Arki-Basantpur-Luhri -ANNI.
