Haridwar has become synonymous to the culture of pilgrimages. It is an ancient city and an important site in Uttarakhand, with the Ganges at Himalayan foothills. The largest of the various sacred ghats, Har ki Pauri hosts an aarti every day. Hari stands for Lord Vishnu, so the ancient city means the gateway to Lord Vishnu. To reach Badrinath, which is one of the four dhams, Haridwar is typically the place to start the journey, hence the name.
