Shiv Murti and River Ganges

River Ganges Aarti

The main attraction of Haridwar is Ganges Aarti. First preference should always revolve around it. Twice a day, everyday, River Ganges Aarti is done by priests of the main temple at the time of Dawn and Dusk.

We often get asked by our Guests at what time Aarti takes place, one can easily remember that the timings of Dawn and Dusk decides the time (only exclusion is the day of Solar Eclipse in which some different times aarti happens, which is decided by the Ganga Sabha).

To make the best out of the time in Haridwar, plan the tour keeping in mind the timing of Ganga ji aarti.

Aarti

Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi Temple

Haridwar is located between two mountains, on one mountain peak there is Mansa devi and in another Mountain peak there is Chandi Devi, guests should always visit both these Landmark temples whenever they are in Haridwar.

Maa Mansa Devi is a very beautiful and pious temple in Haridwar situated on top of Bilwa parvat.

A very beautiful view, wonderful sight of Haridwar and from atop River Ganga can be seen in its full glory.

To reach Mansa Devi, two options are there, either by walk or by ropeway.

As the temple is so beautiful and revered by pilgrims there is huge crowd in summer months, it is advisable to have some dedicated time to visit Maa Mansa Devi in summer months.

Mansa Devi is considered as one of the famous Siddhapeethas where ones wishes are fulfilled, be the one to visit this beautiful temple.

There is a cafetaria in ropeway area, people can have refreshments as it can get tiring .

Maa Chandi Devi mandir is the second most visited temple in Haridwar. It is situated on top of Neel Parvat Haridwar.

Its height is more then Mansa Devi mandir and the view of Haridwar from the temple is so mesmerizing that pilgrims are so overwhelmed by the beauty of Haridwar and this loved view is to be seen everytime one is in Haridwar.

Pilgrims can reach both the temples by ropeway, we have made a time table of timings for Mansa Devi and Chandi Devi temple and ropeway. It is advisable to take a combined ticket for both the ropeway as travelling to the respective bases is also included in the fare. A shared tempo traveller makes travelling between temples easy.
