Gau Ghat Overview
Gau Ghat is located in the southern part of Subhash Ghat and is relatively less crowded. The ashes of Mahatma Gandhi, Indira Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru were cremated at this ghat. It is a common belief among Hindus that killing a cow is a sin equal to killing a Brahman. Devotees visit Gau Ghat to cleanse themselves of the sin of killing a cow, hence the name. People also visit here to offer respects to their dead family members. It is one of the less crowded temples in Haridwar and celebrates many festivals.
