 It is a city that attracts devotees every year from all around the globe. I spent a whole day roaming from different ghats of Haridwar to the alleys, markets, food joints to feel the real essence of this holy city. I put the whole experience in this documentary type to understand the belief which draws people from every corner to this sacred land.
