One Day Haridwar and Rishikesh Local Sightseeing Trip by Car Header

Located on the banks of the holy Ganga, Haridwar translates to “Gateway to God.” This pious town is home to countless temples and holy shrines. The ghats along the river are of great importance too, and it is believed that taking a dip in the holy water of the Ganges relieves us of all our sins, granting us moksha.

The city celebrates its rich religious and spiritual legacy by hosting a number of festivals such as the Kumbh Mela, Ganga Dussehra, Kavad Mela and Somvati Amavasya Mela, that attract thousands of devotees from all around the world. Haridwar is also famous for its yoga retreat and is a hotspot of Ayurvedic treatments.

Rishikesh is another holy town situated at the foothills of Himalayas, along with the convergence of Ganga and Chandrabhaga rivers. This small town is a sight to treasure with its many ancient temples, cute cafes, yoga ashrams and Ayurveda clinics. Other than being popular with devotees, Rishikesh is also visited by young people to enjoy adventure sports such as whitewater rafting, camping, bungee jumping, mountain biking, trekking and simply to relax in any of the multi-cuisine cafes in the town.

Rishikesh is also a favorite destination to visit for rock culture lovers due to the Beatles’ association with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the 1960s. So whether it be for spiritual reasons or for an adrenaline rush, our same day Haridwar and Rishikesh private tour are perfect for a weekend trip!

Haridwar and Rishikesh must be visited by everyone who is interested in Hindu mythology and wishes to enjoy a spiritual weekend away from the hustle-bustle of the cities.

It is believed that it was at Har ki Pauri where the celestial bird Garuda accidentally spilled a few drops of an elixir and made this site holy. The river is painted in a golden color every evening when countless diyas are set afloat on the river by the devotees.

Har Ki Pauri is also the site where River Ganga that has been cascading through the Himalayas touches the plains for the first time. The water appears calm but beware of its strong currents and be especially mindful of your children and elderly family members!
Har ki Pauri is also believed to have been visited by Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu. In fact, do remember to see the stone wall that is said to hold the imprints of Lord Vishnu’s feet!

Ganga Aarti is a religious prayer that takes place at Har ki Pauri in Haridwar, without fail, every day of the year.

The aarti seems to be a festival of light and sound where the priests perform the prayer rituals with bowls of fire, ringing the temple bells and blowing conch shells. This aarti along with Ganga Maiyya pays tribute to Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara.

The Ganga Aarti attracts up to 30,000 devotees every evening. The ritual begins by bringing the idol of Ganga from a temple located on the same ghat. The goddess is brought to the prayer platform in a decorated ‘palkhi.’ The priests dance and chant holy hymns and shortly after, the prayer starts.

This is then followed by the singing of ‘Ganga Lahari’ and devotees singing praises of Goddess Ganga. And finally, the main aarti begins. The aarti is just a five-minute song accompanied by the sound of bells and conch shells. This can turn out to be an overwhelming experience, and the devotees are left wanting more.
