Kumbh Mela Part VI: Hari Ki Pauri

Hari Ki Pauri is believed to be the point at which Ganges leaves the mountains and enterers the plains of India.  It is the most revered site in Haridwar believed by Hindus to have been visited by both Siva and Vishnu.   While this revered ghat was closed to all but holy men the previous day on Somavati Amavasya, day of the Kumbh Mela’s second royal bath, it was swamped again the following morning with pilgrims bathing in the sacred waters of the Ganga.
