Haridwar is an ancient city in Uttarakhand, India. The River Ganges, after flowing for 253 kilometers (157 miles) from its source at Gaumukh at the edge of the Gangotri Glacier, enters the Indo-Gangetic Plains of North India for the first time at Haridwar, which gave the city its ancient name, Gangadwára. Haridwar is regarded as one of the seven holiest places to Hindus. Pilgrims, devotees, and tourists congregate in Haridwar to perform ritualistic bathing on the banks of the river Ganges to wash away their sins to attain Moksha (to be released from the cycle of rebirth impelled by the law of karma, in the Hindu and Jain religions.)
