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.
For shopping Moti Bazaar, Upper Road, Kankhal and Jwalapur are the main centres. Government run Handloom and Handicraft stores
offer a wide range of products including carved stone sculptures.
Haridwar is an exclusively vegetarian town, and alcohol is banned by law. For accommodation, there are Hotels and 'Dharamshalas' available all over the town.
