Evening Aarti At Har-ki-Pairi
In Haridwar, The Evening Aarti At Har-ki-Pairi Is The Major Attraction. This Is The Religious Ceremony Giving Prayers And Offering To The Ganga. The Sound Of Gongs, Chaotic Atmosphere And Fully Packed Crowd.

Small Baskets With Flowers With A Candle To Light Can Be Bought Everywhere, And The Idea Is To Place It Into The Ganges After Sunset. The Sight Of The Flickering Candles On The Water Is Beautiful.One Spectacle To Watch With Many Diyas Floated On River And Devotees Holding A Common Belief Of Faith And Trust On Ganges River.
