HARIDWAR & RISHIKESH

Haridwar
Phone Code: 01334Postcode: 249401
Haridwar is on the west bank of the Ganges, at the foot of the Himalaya Mountains. Haridwar means “the gateway to Hari” (Lord Vishnu). It is also called Ganga-dwara, because the holy Ganges enters the plains here. This is one of the seven main holy cities in India. Hari­dwar is about 225km northeast of Delhi.
It is called Mayapuri Kshetra in the Puranas and it is a very ancient town. It is also called Kapilasthan, because it is said that Kapiladeva performed penance here. The great sacrifice of Daksha Prajapati took place near here, where Sati burned herself alive. Nearby, at Sapta Sarovara, the Ganges splits into seven streams to please the seven Rishis doing austerities there.
Haridwar is hot in the summer, but the Ganges’ water is always icy cold. The river is fed by melting glaciers and snow peaks. A barrage just north of Haridwar splits the Ganges. The water that flows next to the city of Haridwar is actually a fast-moving, big canal. The main natural rivulet of the Ganges, called Neel Dhara, flows about a half-km east of the city. The Ganges is known as the Ganga in India.
Haridwar is a fairly busy, fast-moving town. Most people stay here for a day or two and then move on to Rishikesh or some other place in the mountains. If you want a peaceful place to stay for a few weeks, most people prefer Rishikesh, but I have meet several people that preferred Haridwar for a long-term stay. Meat, fish, and all intoxication are banned in Haridwar.OrientationThe railway station and UP Roadways bus stand are across from each other on the main road of town, Railway Rd, in the southwest part of town. Railway Rd (also known as Upper Rd) runs parallel with the Ganges Canal for about 2½ km where it comes to Hari-ki-Pairi, the main ghat in town. There are several budget and middle class hotels near the railway station. Railway Rd is a very busy street with shops, restaurants and hotels along it. South of Hari-ki-Pairi, running just parallel to the Ganges is the busy Bara Bazaar.Just before the Ganges reaches Haridwar, it divides. The main branch goes southeast and the other branch goes southwest, by-passing Haridwar. When it goes through Haridwar it is called the Upper Ganges Canal.

Note The local name for the Ganges is the Ganga, and most people only know it by this name.Kumbha-melaHaridwar is one of the four places where the xe "Kumbha-mela:Haridwar"Kumbha-mela is held, during which sadhus from all over India come. This takes place every 12 years. The other places where Kumbha-mela takes place are Allahabad (Prayag), Nasik, and Ujjain. It is said that some nectar from the kumbha (pitcher) carried by Jayanta (the son of Indra) fell at this place. Over 6 million people come here to the Kumbha-mela. The main bathing place is at Hari-ki-Pairi Ghat. I went to the 1998 Kumbha Mela. I found going on the main Maha Kumbha day to be a very pleasant event. It is highly recommended.
The next Kumbha-mela to be held here will be from February to May in 2010. Every six years Ardha Kumbha (half Kumbha) is held; the next being in 2004. The astrological timing of Kumbha-mela at Haridwar is when Jupiter is in Aquarius and the Sun is in Aries. There are several major bathing days, which fall on auspicious days and festivals, such as Siva-ratri, Amavasya and the Maha Kumbha day (the biggest day). On the main bathing days there is a parade at 12 noon that begins across the river from Hari-ki-Pairi, about a kilometre to the right. The parade is lead by the head of the Sankaracharya Mutts and then is followed by the Naga-babas first, and then the other sampradayas (religious groups). The members of the parade proceed to Hari-ki-Pairi Ghat and bathe there. During this time Hari-ki-Pairi is closed to the public.
Many people camp out at giant campgrounds across the river from Hari-ki-Pairi and at other areas covering several kilometres. On days other than the main bathing day there is not much happening at the camp sites and most people will not consider them worth visiting.
The festival extents from Siva-ratri, which is the appearance day of Lord Siva in Feb/March until the middle of May. Siva-ratri is the main day for devotees of Lord Siva and there is a big parade with many Naga-babas. The main time for Vaishnavas is during April and May. The main day is the Maha Kumbha day in April/May, when over a millions people come to bath. The main bathing place is at Hari-ki-Pairi and bathing for the public begins early in the morning and goes to around 11:30 am. At this time, Hari-ki-Pairi is closed so the sadhus can take bath from around 12 noon to 2 pm. After this, it is open again. When I watched the bathing from around 9 am to 2 pm everything was very orderly and not very crowded. It was a very well organized event.
On the main bathing days there are special trains that come from Rishikesh and Delhi. There are also many extra buses. There are two special bus stations set up a few kilometres from the downtown to the north (towards Rishikesh) and south (towards Delhi). Motor vehicles are not supposed to go past these points. I found it to be no problem to go between Rishikesh and Haridwar at 6:30 am on the main Maha Kumbha day, because of all the special transportation arranged. I took the train into Haridwar and the bus out. There was almost no traffic on the road. There are large crowds walking around the street, but I saw everything to be very orderly with no pushing or shoving and it was quite interesting. The crowds are spread out over several kilometres.Hari-ki-Pairi Ghat (Brahma Kund)Hari-ki-Pairi is located at the exact spot where the Ganges leaves the mountains and reaches the plains and is considered a very holy place.The name Hari-ki-Pairi means “the feet of Hari (Lord Vishnu).” The footprints of Lord Vishnu are imprinted on the wall underneath the water at this ghat. You need to ask one of the priests to be able to touch it.
This ghat is also called Brahma Kund because it is said that Raja Shveta performed austerities here and received blessings from Brahma. Kumbha-mela is held here, as this is where the nectar fell. There are temples dedicated to the goddess Ganga and Haricharan here.
Every night at about 6 pm there is an arati (worship) to the sacred Ganges. The arati consists of an elaborate ritual of offering large lamps to the Ganges and the loud banging of gongs and playing of other instruments. It is a dramatic and interesting event.
Before starting their “Char Dham yatra,” pilgrims are supposed to come and bathe at this ghat. One hundred thousand people can bathe here at one time. There are chains and rails that enable people to bathe safely, as the Ganges flows very quickly at this spot.
Hundreds of thousands of people come to bathe at this ghat on the first day of Vaisakha in April/May, when the Hindu solar year begins. On Ganga-dasera, at the beginning of the rainy season, the Ganges is said to have come down from the heavens. Other important bathing days are on Purnims (full moon days, especially Kartika Purnim), Ekadasis, Amavasyas (new moon days), Sankrantis (when the sun enters the next zodiac sign), and solar and lunar eclipses.
The ashes of the dead are supposed to be cast into the Ganges at the southern part of the ghat.Other GhatsSouth of Hari-ki-Pairi, there is an interesting area to walk which is lined with bathing ghats.Kushavarta Ghat, about half a km south of Hari-ki-Pairi Kund, is said to be the place where Dattatreya did penance by standing on one foot for a thousand years.
Lord Vishnu is said to have bathed at Vishnu Ghat.
Running parallel to the river, between the Ganges and Upper Rd, south of Hari-ki-Pairi, is the busy Bara Bazaar. It has an interesting assortment of religious paraphernalia along with many other items.
Mansa Devi TempleThis temple is situated on Vilwa Parvat, the hill above the city. Mansa Devi is a form of Shakti Durga. There is a cable car that goes to the top of the hill, which you board close to Ratan Cinema, just off the main road (8 am to 6 pm, Rs 30 return). From the top of the hill you get a bird’s eye view of Haridwar, the Ganga valley, and the Himalayan peaks. Open 8 am to noon and 2 to 5 pm. It takes about a half-hour to walk up the hill (1½ km).
Other PlacesBhimgoda Kund is said to have been created by Bhima, one of the Pandava brothers from the Mahabharata, by a blow of his knee. It is about half a km upstream from Hari-ki-Pairi Ghat, just off the road on the way to Sapta Rishi Ashram. You can get shared rickshaws to Rishikesh from here. About 200m north is the Jai Ram Ashram, on the road to Rishikesh, where there are statues of the gods and goddesses and motorized exhibits of the Vedic pastimes.
About a half km down the road, is the Pawan Dham Temple, which is decorated with excellent mirror and glasswork. It has many shrines dedicated to different deities.
One km further north is the Lal Mata Temple, which was finished in 1994. This temple is modeled after the Vaishno Devi Temple in Jammu & Kashmir. There is an artificial hill, which resembles the original. Also there is a replica of the ice Siva-linga, that is located at the Amarnath Cave in Jammu & Kashmir. It is an interesting temple.
Down the road is the Parmath Ashram, which has a temple dedicated to the goddess Durga. You then go further to the eight-storey high Bharat Mata Temple, which is about 5km north of Haridwar. On the top floor is a deity of Lord Shankar (Siva). You take an elevator (lift) to the top floor and then walk down.
About half a km further north is Sapta Rishi Ashram. It is about 6km north of Haridwar, on the banks of the Ganges. At this place, the Ganges is said to have divided to avoid displeasing the seven rishis (yogis) meditating there.
About 4½ km from Haridwar on the southeastern summits of the Siwalik Hills are the Chandi Devi (1929) and Anjani Devi Temples. At the foot of the hills are the Gauri-Sankara and Neele­swara temples.
The Pareshwar Mahadev Temple is four km south of Haridwar. The Siva-linga in the temple is said to be made of mercury.KankhalKankhal is said to have been the capital of Prajapati Daksha. It is about 4km south of the Haridwar railway station.
Daksha, the son of Lord Brahma and father of Sati, once performed a yajna (great sacrifice) at this place. Sati burned herself alive during the sacrifice because her father had insulted her husband Lord Siva. After which, when Siva was carrying the body of Sati, Lord Vishnu cut up her body into 51 pieces, which fell in different places around India. At many of the places where the parts of her body fell, important Shakti-pitha temples were established. You can read the full story about this event in the General Information chapter.
The Dakseswara Mahadeva Siva Temple (also called Daksha Prajapati Temple) is said to have been built in commemoration of Lord Siva coming to this place to help Sati. Next to this temple on the bank of the Ganges is Daksha Ghat. Sati Kund on Kankhal Jwalapur Road is said to mark the spot where Sati actually burnt herself.

Rishikesh is located in the northern part of Uttar Pradesh. It is 238 km northeast of Delhi and 24 km north of Haridwar and spreads on the right banks of the Ganges, at its confluence with the Chandrabhaga stream. It is surrounded by hills on three sides and is perched at an altitude of 356 meters above sea level. The name Rishikesh is loosely applied to an association of five distinct sections encompassing not only the town but also hamlets and settlements on both sides of the river. These include Rishikesh itself, the commercial and communication hub; the sprawling suburban Muni-ki-Reti or the "sands of the sages"; Shivananda Nagar, north of Rishikesh; the temple section of Lakshmanjhula, a little further north; and the assorted ashrams around Swarg Ashram on the east bank. In Rishikesh, the winters last from November to March, when temperatures fall below 0°C. The monsoons are generally experienced in the months of July and August. The Past Legend has it that the sage Raibhya Rishi did severe penance and, as a reward, God appeared to him in the form of Hrishikesh. Rishikesh also represents the site where Lord Vishnu vanquished the demon Madhu. The place is known as the Tapo Bhumi or the place for meditation of the Gods. Tapovan, on the other bank of the Ganges, houses a temple to Lakshmana. It is believed that Lakshmana, the younger brother of Lord Rama, carried out penance here. The Neelkanth Mahadev temple is believed to be the site where Lord Shiva had drunk the venom that came out during the churning of the ocean. In the 1960s, the place came into limelight as the place where the pop group Beatles met their guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
