Haridwar, meaning the 'Gateway to God', is one of the four prominent pilgrimage stops in Uttaranchal. The others are Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Legend has it that it is at this place that Prince Bhagirath performed penance and in answer to his prayers Lord Shiva released River Ganga slowly from his hair locks much to the happiness of the people of King Sagara. River Ganga descends from the mountains onto the plains at Haridwar before moving on to other parts of North India.
