Har Ki Pauri

At almost every turn in the Garhwal Himalyas, there are Hindu mythological sites to be seen. These sites include temples, ashrams, ghats etc. Hari Ki Pauri in Uttaranchal is the place where most of the Indian saints and rishis are headed, in search of peace and nirvana. The location of the temple in the scenic Himalayas only adds to the spiritual aura that revolves around the temple. If you have heard about Uttaranchal being called the abode of Gods, a visit to Har Ki Pauri will prove it. During the highly sacred religious fair of Kumbh Mela and Ardh Kumbh Mela, crores of devotees and pilgrims as well as tourists flock to the place to become a part of this surreal spectacle and to seek spiritual peace.

Har Ki Pauri

The temple also bear much prominence as it was constructed by King Vikramaditya himself to commemorate his brother Bhatrihari. Vikramaditya's brother had arrived on the banks of divine Ganges due to his spiritual quest. Bhatrihari spent his time meditating on the banks of Ganga. Also referred to as the Brahmakund, Har ki Pauri is highly auspicious for Hindus. Devotees and pilgrims flock to the site to take a holy dip in the Ganges and offer prayers at the temple. The temple enshrines the footprints of Lord Hari (Vishnu).

As you arrive at Har ki Pauri, you will witness a good number of long haired pilgrims, with their body smeared with ashes. The sound of temple bells and the mantras being chanted, the scene really come alive and speaks for itself. At twilight, the scene become much more lively at the Ganga Arti (worshipping the divine Ganges) is performed. Hundreds of glowing lamps float along the waters of Ganges.
