We reached there dealing with one stopover by 4.30. ( Trust me , it was earlier than we expected to reach . Thanks to the driver ).
Stay was not an issue , We got to live in a friend's flat. Clock struck 5.00 am and there we could easily hear the sadhu's chanting mantras , the bells ringing it was treat to ears ( It was all audible because the flat was very close to the ganga ghat )
After getting done with breakfast and freshning up , we took an auto to har ki pauri and reached there in 30 mins.
Har ki Pauri is a revered pilgrim site for Hindus and a holy landmark in Haridwar. Hindu priest offer aarti to holy river during sunrise and sunset . We missed the sunrise aarti and hence had to wait for the sunset aarti which was to happen at 6.15 . We meanwhile planned for sight-seeing and roaming around..We decided to visit mansa devi temple and chandi devi temple and enjoyed the cable car rides, the view from there was stunning , the town was clearly visible . The hills , the water flowing , the sadhus , the serenity everything was just a bliss .
We somehow managed to roam around had some tea and samosa and what not. If you are a foodie , this place is going to make you happy.
At 6.15 we searched for a spot and sat to witness the aarti . The chants , the huge fire creates a positive environment and gives you energetic and positive vibes. I could feel it all. The crowd was singing ganga aarti , everyone in their own tune , it was amazing to see them. The aarti got over and we headed back to our place.The place provides for couples with some artistic poses. I have uploaded the same :P
