Since time immemorial, Haridwar has been one of the most revered ancient pilgrimage centers in India. The major landmark of the holy city of Haridwar is Har Ki Pauri - the famous ghat on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar in Uttarakhand state in India. Har Ki Pauri is believed to be the exit point of the Ganges from the mountains and entry into the plains. It is at this place the sacred Ganga Aarti takes places every evening. Thousands of pilgrims take the dip in the holy Ganges on the ghats of Har Ki Paudi during the Ardh Kumbh Mela, which takes place every six years.
