As old as the civilization, Haridwar is among the seven holy cities according to Hinduism. Blazing day and night with the soft echoes of priests and devotees chanting the name of Lord Vishnu is the usual scenario of Haridwar. Counted among the most religious places in India, River Ganges after flowing for 310 km enters the Indo-Gangetic Plains of North India and pour down in Haridwar. Which is why the holy pilgrimage site is known by the name Gangadwara. Our Haridwar tour packages take you down for a religious tour you wouldn’t have experienced before in India.
The clashing cymbals and the enchanted devotees in saffron clothes are seen coming to the Gateway of God, Haridwar to seek blessings from Lord Vishnu. Counted as one of the holiest places of India, here pilgrims come to wash off their sins and attain salvation.
Besides, within the spiritual bounds of Haridwar, there are "Gangadwar" (Har ki Pauri), Bilwa Tirtha (Mansa Devi Temple), Kushawart (Ghat in Kankhal), and Neel Parvat (Chandi Devi Temple). These places are known as the Panch Tirth meaning the five pilgrimages which lie within the holy city.

The Hindu pilgrimage, Kumbh Mela also takes place in Haridwar every twelve years.
