Haridwar Culture

Haridwar culture is an enchanting blend of tradition, history and religion. Considered as one of the seven holy seats of Hinduism, Haridwar can be proud of its cultural heritage.

The old havelis, temples and mansions carry the rich Hindu architectural brilliance. Set amidst beautiful mountainous landscapes, Haridwar is one of the greatest centers of classical music and art forms. As per religious beliefs, god has left his footprints in this holy city and the folk songs of the land still chant that incident.

Festivals and fairs are integrally associated with culture of Haridwar. Apart from the usual Hindu festivals, Kavad Mela, Somvati Amavasya Mela and Kumbh Mela are celebrated with great fervor and respect.

An inherent part of Haridwar's culture is its Yoga Ashrams. Located amidst the beautiful natural landscapes beside the holy river Ganga, these Yoga Ashrams are the learning centers of this age old Indian spiritual and physical practice.
