Temple bells ringing in the distance, Hindu priests chanting religious verses and a sense of peace that overwhelms the soul - that's Haridwar for you! While the word literally suggests that it is the 'Gateway to Lord Vishnu', Haridwar is considered to be one among the seven holiest places in India. Steeped in Hindu religion and mythology, the city is known to be one among the four pilgrimage centres in the country that hosts the famous Kumbh Mela. It is here that the Ganga River enters the Indo-Gangetic Plains in North India after having completed a course of 310 km from its source at Gaumuk. Home to a number of temples, ghats and ashrams, Haridwar is indeed a spiritual retreat. With a constant influx of pilgrims and tourists round the year, the city provides a number of options when it comes to accommodation. From luxury hotels that offer awesome views of the city and its famous ghats to budget properties and guest houses, Haridwar has it all. While staying at some of the best hotels in Haridwar may come with a steep price tag, the services and amenities provided ensure a luxurious stay. The budget hotels in Haridwar strive to make sure that guests have a comfortable stay, without burning a hole in their pockets.
