Haridwar is a holy city in Uttarakhand. In Hindi, Haridwar stands for Dwar of Hari or Gateway to God, with 'Hari' meaning god and 'dwar' meaning gate. The city is regarded as one of the seven holiest places to Hindus. According to Hindu mythology, it is one among the four sites where drops of the elixir of immortality, Amrita, accidentally spilled over from the pitcher. The spot where the nectar fell is considered to be the Brahma Kund at Har-ki-Pauri (literally, "footsteps of the Lord," and symbolically the footprints of the Amrita), the most sacred ghat of Haridwar; thousands of devotees and pilgrims flock here during festivals or snan from all over India to take a holy dip. This act is considered to be the equivalent of washing away one's sins to attain Moksha.
