HARIDWAR RISHIKESH TOUR
Haridwar Rishikesh Tour( 2 Days 1 Night)
Day -1 : Delhi - Haridwar
In the morning, drive from Delhi to reach Haridwar
Arrive in the holy town of Haridwar and transfer to
the pre-booked hotel. Post lunch, visit Popular
temples in Haridwar including Pareshwar Mahadev
Temple, Daksha Mahadev Temple and Mansa Devi Temple.
Later, visit Har-ki-Pauri (the footstep of God) -
one of the most sacred ghats both in Haridwar and in
India . Hindus believe that this ghat was built by
Vikramaditya in the memory of his brother
Bhartrihari. This ghat is also known as Brahmakund.
Later witness Ganga Aarti Ceremony of the Holy River
Ganges. Aarti is the beautiful ceremony in which
deeyas (the oil lamps) are offered to God. Aarti can
be done to a deity in the temple or it can be done
to a saint also as per tradition. It is performed to
God, in any manifestation, or in any form, by any
name. The essence of the Ganga Aarti ceremony is a
time when we say "thank you," and we offer the light
of our thanks, the light of our love and the light
of our devotion to the god to seek their blessings.
We realize that the small deeya is nothing compared
to the divine light which shines on us all day.
Overnight at hotel in Haridwar.
