Aarati at Har ki Paidi Haridwar (Postcard – Digital)

A postally used four colour digitally printed Picture Post Card mailed from the Kumbh Post Office Haridwar to an address within Haridwar. Fourth and the last card of the four-card series ‘Kumbh and COVID-19’

Aarati at Har ki Paidi Haridwar. Mighty oceans were churned in a collaboration of the divines and the demons. Finally, a Kumbh (pot) of life-elixir was obtained drops from which fell in Ganga at Har-ki-paidi in Haridwar rendering it to be the most sacred spot in Ganga. Aarati prayers to Ganga are held twice every day — at the time of dawn and dusk. It is the biggest attraction in Haridwar. There are two hydro-electricity generating plants: one as Ganga is about to enter Haridwar and the other where Ganga exits Haridwar.
