Har Ki Pauri attracts millions of Hindu devotees from almost every corner of the globe. It is the place where most of saints head to when they want to attain nirvana (the state of eternal happiness). Located in the foot of the Garhwal Himalayas, Har Ki Pauri remains packed with devotees and tourists all round the year. However, the glory of this holy temple as well as a revered Ganga Ghat is at its height during the Kumbh Mela season in the holy town of Haridwar.
The Har Ki Pauri temple carries even more significance, because it preserves the footprints of Lord Shiva even to this day. The scene at the Ganges ghats can itself stir your soul and immerse you in the ocean of devotion. The entire ghat remains lined with saints, rishihs and pilgrims.
Har Ki Pauri is also known as Brahmakund. According to the Hindu mythology, it was King Vikrmaditya who built the Har Ki Pauri temple in Haridwar. Throughout the day, devotees keep on taking a holy dip in the Ganges and offering prayers at Har Ki Pauri
