Puja at Haridwar

Haridwar is one of India’s premier pilgrimage towns. It has an energy and atmosphere to match Varanasi but on a smaller and less frenetic scale. Any visitor should make sure they head to the bathing ghats in time for the evening Aarti, a devotional ceremony during which light is offered as prayers to the gods. As dusk falls the ghats become an enchanting sight, as thousands of diyas and marigold flowers float and illuminate the Holy waters. The evening ‘aarti’ ceremony is a spectacular event and a must for any traveller visiting the town.
