When Ganga was brought to Haridwar, then all the Gods asked: We wash all sins, but who will wash us? Ganga asked this to Lord Vishnu:Lord Vishnu Bhagwan, tell us, what should we do? Then the Lord said:
"As many sadhus and saints are living in this world, every time they will bathe in Ganga, all your sins will be washed away automatically"
It was another weekend of summers and I couldn’t wait to get some spiritual touch and blessings of Har ki Pauri at Haridwar before heading to Rishikesh,adventure capital of India.
4-5 hours drive away from Delhi it is a top favourite getaway among North Indians in summers.after having dinner in Delhi now it’s time to take bus to Haridwar,as it was peak season and i was struggling to get on to good sleeper bus with air con preferably as i was traveling whole day and trying to get some sleep,finally after an hour an agent approached me for ticket and with no option left and it was already late in the night i get in to this private Volvo which was comfortable but they waited outside Bus terminal for long until all the seats gets occupied.
It was 1 am and journey started from ISBT Kashmere Gate,Delhi.thanks to the road which is now in good condition i didn't knew when i reached Haridwar in early morning and i directly headed to Har ki Pauri as it was best time to feel and enjoy the the cold and pure water of Ganga because it was unbearable once the sun is out.
Haridwar is small city and easy to walk upon.alternatively there are numbers of auto rickshaws standing near Har ki Pauri to take you to nearby places and even to Rishikesh.
