Location
Haridwar & Rishikesh are incredible holy towns in India. It is the last place where the river Ganga leaves the mountain to enter the Gangetic plains. The story goes that when the Demons and Gods churned the ocean, a pot of nectar was revealed. The Gods and Demons fought over the nectar and four drops fell from the pot. Haridwar is one of these lucky places where the nectar fell. The River Ganga is considered as nectar due to the amount of healing and beneficial properties she brings down for the Himalayas on her course through the great country of India. It is due to this nectar that the great Kumbh Mela Festival is held here in Haridwar every twelve years.
