Haridwar is an old town and one of Hindus’ major pilgrimage sites. It is in the Uttarakhand district of Haridwar. After 157 km flowing in Haridwar, the holy river Ganga enters the Indo-Ghetti plane. This gave the town its former name Gangadwara, meaning literally ‘The Ganga Gateway’. Many Hindus regard Haridwar as one of the seven holiest locations.
The myth tells that an immortal drop was scattered at the Har ki Pauri ghat, and this has since turned the spot into a particularly revered place. The spectacle of Haridwar is a spectacle of Indian culture and growth. Haridwar has a chaotic but reverent atmosphere, as many people gather around Har ki Pauri Ghat.
From Haridwar, the most famous of India’s holy rivers, the holy river Ganga or Ganges River, begins to flow.
Hindu worshippers flock to the river to take a dip or bathe in its waters, believing that doing so cleanses them of worldly sins and brings them closer to salvation, or moksha. Hindu rites for the dearly dead are commonly performed along the Ganges River and its banks.
The Pind Daan is one such rite. Our skilled team provides Pind Daan services in Haridwar, with our Brahmin pandits performing the procedure in accordance with sacred Hindu literature and tradition.
Asthi Visarjan, a mandatory Hindu ritual is very beneficial when performed. Pilgrims bathe in the sacred river in the firm belief that doing so cleanses the soul of all sins and ensures that they will achieve moksha after death. In the belief that their souls would rest in peace, the ashes of the deceased are immersed in the sacred waters of the River Ganga.
Those who place a higher value on their ancestors’ souls reaching moksha visit Haridwar for the Asthi Visarjan rites.
Generally, at Brijghat, the Asthi Visarjan Poojan is done on the river Ganga’s banks. But at Prayag pandits, we perform the asthi visarjan poojan over the Ganga river itself via a motorboat.

Tarpan in Haridwar is performed for bringing happiness and relieve the performer and his family from any problems or pains that may arrive.
The term ‘trup’ refers to a person’s ability to please others. The basic word ‘Trup’ was used to create the term ‘Tarpan.’ Tarpan is the act of offering water to God, the Sages, the souls of ancestors, and human people and gratifying them with it.
The goal of tarpan is for God, departed ancestors’ spirits, and other entities whose names are uttered throughout the ritual to give pleasure on us.
For the departed father, grandpa, and great-grandfather, as well as the mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, the rite is done. Its purpose is to nurture, protect, and sustain the dead’s spirits on their journey from the lower to higher realms, prior to their reincarnation and reappearance on Earth. Depending on caste customs, the rites are done between the 11th and 31st day following death, and at regular intervals thereafter. A shraddha ritual is held on the first year death anniversary to allow the departed (preta) to be inducted into the assembly of forebears.
If a family is suffering from untimely or uncertain deaths of their loved ones, or if ancestral rituals like Pind daan, Shradh or Tarpan is not performed regularly for a long time, or incase there is Pitru Dosha in the birth chart of a family member, then Narayan bali pooja is performed. Narayan bali pooja benefits the family and frees the family members from such mishappenings and negative or paranormal events. This pooja is performed for a duration, ranging anywhere from 3 days to 7 days.
