HARIDWAR: - Haridwar also spelled Hardwar is an ancient city and municipality in the Hardwar district of Uttarakhand, India. The River Ganga, after flowing for 253 kilometers (157 mi) from its source at Gaumukh at the edge of the Gangotri Glacier, enters the Indo-Gangetic Plains of North India for the first time at Hardwar, which gave the city its ancient name, Gangadw/ára. This is manifested in the Kumbha Mela, which is celebrated every 12 years in Hardwar. During the Hardwar Kumbha Mela, millions of pilgrims, devotees, and tourists congregate in Hardwar to perform ritualistic bathing on the banks of the river Ganges to wash away their sins to attain Moksha . Brahma Kund, the spot where the Amrit fell, is located at Har ki Pauri (literally, footsteps of the Lord) and is considered to be the most sacred ghat of Hardwar. A heaven for nature significant others, Hardwar presents a kaleidoscope of Indian culture and development. In the sacred writings it has been differently specified as Kapilsthan, Gangadw/ára and Mayapuri.
