Mansa Devi Temple

Manasa Devi Temple seems to have a significant space among the minds of the devotees of Shakti, the goddess this temple is dedicated to. Perched on the top of Bilwa Parvat on the Sivalik Hills, the temple offers a splendid view of the mighty Ganges and the holy city of Haridwar. Rather than being a pilgrim centre, the temple makes its value higher among the adventure seekers as well because, the temple is accessible either only by trekking the high altitude or taking the recently established rope way. Chandi Devi Temple located very close to this shrine attracts a large number of devotees everyday as there is a belief that the two forms of Goddess Parvati, Mansa and Chandi stay close to each other.

Har Ki Pauri

It is just marvelous to have the views of Har Ki Pauri, a famous ghat on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar, especially in the evening, lit by thousands of lamps along with the glittering mountains in the backdrop. The name Har ki Pauri means the steps of Lord Shiva and the ghat witnesses many different festivities including the majestic Kumbh Mela in every 12 years, Ardh Kumbhmela in every 6 years. Thousands of devotees and pilgrims offering prayers here are an unusually usual sight every day. The Ganga Aarti happening in the evenings is very special to the pilgrims coming over, the lights are floated on the holy water as an offering to the lord. Being such an auspicious location, Har Ki Pauri brings forth high spirituality and refreshing attitude which in turn make the devotees keep attracted to the place again and again.
