Haridwar is the place where the river Ganges enters the plain areas of north India after flowing 250 km from its origin Gurumukh (Gangotri Glacier). And this gave the city an ancient name “Gangadwara”.

Haridwar is believed to be blessed by the presence of all three major Gods of Hindus namely Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar. Hence its often called the “Pathway to God”. During KumbhaMela, millions of pilgrims assemble in Haridwar to perform ritualistic holy bathing on the banks of the river Ganges. Dense forests and absolute clear water of river Ganges and the serene fold mountains at the background create the charming beauty of this holy city.
