Mansa Devi Mandir
Behind Gita Bhavan

atop a hill near the center of town. Can be reached by cable car Rs 58 for a return ticket and Rs 210 (in dec'12 for both mansa devi and chandi devi roapway ride along with transfer between 2 temples.) or by a road that gently winds uphill about 2 km, starting from Railway Rd. The temple is aesthetically not particularly noteworthy, but the views are grand. Expect to queue to board the cable car and once more to enter the temple: despite some rudimentary attempts at crowd control, the crowds of jostling devotees can make this a pretty intense experience.


To the north of the center, this is Haridwar's focal point, where devotees gather to bathe and worship on the Ganges. According to legend, this is where a drop of nectar fell from the churning of the oceans when the world was created, and a stone wall has Vishnu's footprint. Each evening around 7 PM,5.45 PM in winter thousands gather and worship the river Goddess by putting diyas floating lamps in the river. You may be asked to make a donation if you linger near the ghats. Beware of con artists posing as officials. If you would like to make a donation there are boxes at the center of the ghats around the light poles.
