Overview

"Gateway to Abode of Gods" Haridwar is one of the holiest places for Hindus in India attracting lakhs of devotees every day. In old times Haridwar was also called Kapilsthan after the great sage Kapil, who lived and meditated here. Hari means Vishnu (the deity of Badrinath), and Dwar means gate. True to its name Haridwar acts as the gate to the Chardham yatras to Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. It is here that River Ganga leaves the mountains to flow into the plains.

Haridwar is the home of many Ashrams and Dharamshalas that have been established by various swamis, yogis, and religious institutions. Throughout the year large numbers of pilgrims come to bathe in the River Ganga, especially at the Har-ki-Pauri ghat, where a footprint of Vishnu is worshiped.

Today Haridwar is a bustling social center, but in ancient times it was quiet forests grove, nestled along rushing Mountain Rivers; the perfect place for contemplation and a life in harmony with the way of nature.

Dear Kallarramga,

Thanks for your query in Kiomoi,

You need Ac Indica for Haridwar --> Rishikesh --> Badrinath.

Haridwar to rishikesh is 25km

Rishikesh to Badrinath is 300km.

Total distance is 325 + 325 = 650Km

You will have to pay aprox Rs 8000.

Good Day !!!

From there we went to Pawan Dham and on the same road I came across a new temple (which we just saw from outside) which had 2 big monster sort of faces near the entrance..the temple i think had a cave sort of appearance..can u please tell me the name of the temple? I am writing an article and would like to know the name...thank u
