The sacred Himalayan town of Haridwar represents a living lesson on Hinduism. Located at the foot of the Shivalik Hills, the town attracts hordes of tourists and devotees from all corners of the world. Haridwar also holds significance because it stands as the gateway to the chardham, which includes Yamunotri, Gangotri, Badrinath Ji and Kedarnath Ji. Haridwar finds its mention in the ancient Hindu epics and scriptures as Mayapuri, Mokshadwar and Gangadwar.
Geographically, it is at Haridwar where the sacred Ganga enters the northern Indian plains. During the Kumbh Mela (held at the interval of every 12 years), the population of the town swells up to millions.
The next Kumbh Mela and the Ardh Kumbh Mela (held at every 6 years) are scheduled to be held in Haridwar in 2010. Today, Haridwar is seen as a mystic centre for the rejuvenation of the body, mind and soul
