One can visit Haridwar just about any time of the year. It is as its name signifies the doorway to the gods since it straddles the gate to all the places of pilgrimage in the north such as Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. But, Haridwar is famous on its own too. At Haridwar the famous Kumbh Mela takes place once every 12 years while every night the bewitching spectacle of the Ganga Aarti at Har Ki Pauri is a sight one would like to see again and again.
There are fine hotels in Haridwar too when you wish to visit the place. There is the Haveli Hari Ganga with its own bathing ghat that presents an amazing façade while the other beautiful hotel in Haridwar is the Ganga Lahari that is located very close to Har Ki Pauri.
The Haveli Hari Ganga is one of the finest hotels in Haridwar. It is also a rare heritage hotel as it was built more than 90 years ago by the Maharaja of Pilibhit. The first time visitor is sure to be entranced by the impact of the combination of old world charm and the modern day hospitality that this excellent hotel has. It has 20 air-conditioned rooms and suites and a multi-cuisine vegetarian restaurant.
It has some rooms that open towards the temple in the courtyard and others that open towards the Ganges. The Haveli has a Spa & Wellness Center that it shares with the other fine hotel in Haridwar, the Ganga Lahari. Both the hotels have the facility of an astrologer for consultation as well as a designated place for yoga & meditation.
