Ardh Kumbh in Haridwar

Ardh Kumbh in Haridwar (19th December 2015) : The famous Ardh kumbh is about to begin in Haridwar from January 2016. Ardh Kumbh is celebrated after every 6 years and considered very sacred for Hindus. Haridwar gets plenty of pilgrims which remain a big task to handle. Along with Haridwar, the other town which is also visited by the tourists is Rishikesh. Rishikesh is also a holy town where people must visit if visiting Haridwar. The pilgrimage of Haridwar is not complete without Rishikesh.           

        Life in the twin towns of Haridwar and Rishikesh pulsates in a devotional atmosphere all the year round.  Ganga instils life and the 24 km road connecting the two places serves as the nerve line that charges these places with a strong religious fervour.  The towns are crowded with pilgrims and tourists from all parts of the world and the bazars are flooded with travel goods.

               The “Haridwar-Rishikesh” complex forms the base for journeys to the holy shrines of Uttarakhand.  Private operators from Rishikesh lift the bulk of the traffic, but a substantial number of people use the chartered buses and taxies available at Haridwar. Taxis are easily available at both places. Uttarakhand Road Transport Corporation has scheduled services to intermediate stations like Uttarkashi, Gopeshwar, Joshimath etc, but till date, they do not have direct services to the shrines, due perhaps to the seasonal nature of the traffic to these shrines.

          There are a large number of dharamshalas, rest houses, ashrams, tourist bungalows, and hotels in both these cities. Hotels are increasing in number to meet the growing demand. Between Haridwar and Rishikesh, the latter is more likely to develop into the main transportation base due to the concentration of private transport operators.  However, construction of new roads in the hills has made it possible to start yatra from other bases too, such as Dehradun, Mussoorie, Kotdwara, Nainital etc.
