Haridwar – The City in Timeline

12 Sep

Haridwar is my home city.Haridwar a city which is as mysterical,mythical,great and old as indian culture.Haridwar or the gateway to the gods is an important hindu piligrim spot.The place where Ganges descendes from hills to plains.There are many stories related to Haridwar.

After travelling, 253 km (157 mi) from its source, at Gaumukh, 3,139 m (10,300 ft) above sea level, situated at the edge of the Gangotri Glacier, Ganga enters the Indo-Gangetic Plain of North India for the first time at Haridwar, [4], and this is what gave the city its ancient name, Gangadwára (गंगाद्वार), as the place where the Ganges descends to the plains
