The restaurant in the hotel serves all kinds of food, from continental to Chinese, and keeping people from all over India in mind, while preparing the dishes.
Staying at the hotel go on to explore Haridwar, which means ‘Gateway of Gods’. Haridwar is referred to so mainly because it is the entry point to ‘Dev Bhoomi‘ (as Uttarakhand is often referred to as) and ‘Char Dham‘ (Four main centers of pilgrimage in Uttarakhand – Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri).
Haridwar is the place from where River Ganga enters plains. You will find many ‘ashrams’ (hermitages and places for meditation) and ‘Dharamshalas’ (rest houses for pilgrims) that have been established over the years around the ghats of River Ganga by various swamis, yogis and religious institutions. Haridwar is also the place where Kumbh Mela takes place once every 12 years, and Ardh Kumbha every six years.
Har Ki Pauri is the most visited and perhaps the most popular place in Haridwar which is visited by everyone. Taking a dip in cool water of the Ganges at the ghats at Har Ki Pauri is an amazing experience. Even more surreal is the ambience during the evening and morning aartis performed daily at Har Ki Pauri ghats.
There are several temples which are popular among people visiting Haridwar for religious reasons. Most prominent of the temples are Mansa Devi Temple, Maya Devi Temple, Chandi Devi Temple and Daksha Mahadev Temple.
Sapta Rishi Ashram, which is situated some 5km from Har Ki Pauri, is one of the more frequented places by the religious minded people.
Rishikesh is also an important place which is situated around 24km from Haridwar. This can also be explored from Haridwar.
For those who want to see things beyond religious and spiritual stuff can choose to visit Rajaji National Park. This is situated very close to Haridwar and flora and fauna diversity in the park is outstanding.
