About Haridwar

If you ask me this question  to me, “Where is Haridwar” , I would probably say that its where the Ganges descends to the plains for the first time, its the place which people treat as the gateways to the gods. Its epicenter of hindu beliefs. Its the place where life starts as well as where life ends ,( In Hinduism, there are lot of Samskara, the first one being the Mundan , and the last one being the Antim- Samskar, Its recommended to get these samskara done at haridwar)
