Har ki Pauri
Har Ki Pauri in Haridwar is accepted to be the passageway purpose of the Ganges from the mountains and passage into the fields. Otherwise called Brahm Kund, this ghat was built by King Vikramaditya in memory of his brother Brithari who frequently meditated the banks of stream Ganga in Haridwar.
The Haridwar Ganga Aarti is held at Hari-ki-Pauri ghat. The name of this renowned ghat truly signifies “Feet of the Lord”. A foot shaped impression on a stone divider there is said to fit in with Lord Vishnu. Ganga Aarti begins in the after nightfall, with incredible jams accumulated in the area of both the banks of a channel that conveys the waters of Ganges.
A night custom (Aarti) performed by the priests on the banks of river Ganga is a profoundly charming and perfect experience. Lights are seen drifting on the river, drenched after the ritual. A marvelous emanation of lights and serenades fills the air in the evenings.
