Garhwal Diaries 14 – Haridwar

Haridwar, one of the holiest Indian cities in India, is a world unto itself. According to Hindu Mythology, Haridwar is one of the four sites where drops of Amrit (the elixir of immortality) fell while Garuda was carrying the same in a pitcher. It is also one of the cities where the Maha Kumbh Mela is held. The photographs below have been clicked on the ghat of Har ki Pauri. For the rest, I will let the photos speak.
