Bharat Mata Temple



The Bharat Mata Temple was founded by Swami Satyamitranand Giri, the great renouncer, and was inaugurated by Indira Gandhi, the former Prime Minister of India, in 1983. The temple is unique as it is dedicated to Mother India or Bharat Mata, as the name suggests.

The temple is dedicated to those who have defined the cultural, spiritual and social history of India over the ages. Majestically standing on the banks of the Ganges in Haridwar, the temple is 8 storeyed and rises to a height of 180 feet. All those who honor Mother India, irrespective of caste, creed, nation and religion are attracted to one of the must visit places in Haridwar.

The vast spectrum of India is reflected in the various displays that the Haridwar Bharat Mata temple houses. The first floor salutes all the brave sons and daughters of Mother India who dedicated their lives to maintain and enhance her honor. A statue of the mother herself stands amidst all these gallant personalities, which include Subhash Chandra Bose, Veer Savarkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Chatrapati Shivaji, Guru Govind Singh, Rani of Jhansi and more. The second floor is dedicated to the glory of Indian women and the holy wedlock of India.

The 3rd floor of the Bharat Mata Mandir in Haridwar upholds Indian philosophy and the concept of sainthood while the 4th floor showcases the harmonial co-existence of all religions. The 5th floor celebrates female prowess through Indian Goddess as mother and as the savior from the perils. The 6th floor displays the avatars and incarnations of the Indian God, Vishnu. The 7th floor is dedicated to Lord Shiva in his various manifestations while the 8th floor or top floor is graced by a Kalasha that glows gorgeously in the sunlight.
