HolidayIQ Reviewer Bhatia Manav says, “Harmandir Sahib (commonly known as the Golden Temple), the spiritual and cultural centre for the Sikh religion. This important Sikh shrine attracts more visitors than the Taj Mahala with more than 100, 000 visitors on weekdays alone and is the most popular destination for non-resident Indians (NRI) in the whole of India.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer PRAKASH GURNANI says, “The rickshaw from the car parking area to the Golden Temple is a good initiative. And the most important thing - the place gives one a beautiful spiritual upliftment for each and every soul.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Renjith Thomas adds, “It should be experienced - free food ( an awesome experience), spiritual atmosphere, the beauty of the temple etc, amazing you may really fall in love with Sikh religion. Night time is best to visit.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Himanshu Bahukhandi adds, “Chandi Devi Temple is said to be one of the most spiritual places in Haridwar and I myself have visited there many times. Chandi Devi Temple is the place where you can find the true spirituality of Haridwar and there is a saying that you should probably visit Chandi Devi Temple if you are visiting Haridwar.

HolidayIQ Reviewer ABHINAV Kumar says, “I cannot express it in words. Being in Haridwar Har Ki Pauri rejoices me, bathing in Ganges gives me a new life packed with positivity and belief in nature or god. I love to visit here again and again. Early morning bath, specially sunrise time, doing Surya Namaskar is such an awesome thing to do.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kamal Rao says, “Aarti in the morning and in the evening will provide you very relaxing and spiritual feelings. Just take holy dip in Ganga ji and purify your soul.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer ABHINAV Kumar shares, “The dynasty of Ujjayini has many religious things to offer. The ranked one temple Mahakaleshwar is situated in the centre of Ujjain city. One of 12 jyotirlingas has many myths and beliefs amongst the believers and scholars.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Siddharth Ajmera adds, “Mahakal / Mahakaleshwar Temple which is a temple of Lord Shiva is the most famous Jyotirlinga amongst all the 12. From spiritual point of view, the temple is very important. That's why it is crowded with devotees from all around India most of the time, especially in the Rainy Season as at the same time, every Monday there's a rally called "Mahakal Ki Sawaari" which is carried out.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Prof P V L says, “People coming there are extremely spiritual, polite and welcoming. A lady, for instance, showed me the way of prostrating and praying and explained the significance. They are always willing to share.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Aaditya Kumar says, “People chanting the prayer and rhythm of the prayer will fill you with the spirituality. Truly a place to begin to paradise, where would you like to begin from?” HolidayIQ Reviewer RN K adds, “The view of the mahabodhi tree where Buddha attained salvation/enlightenment, in the evening with people chanting with joy is always very spiritual.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ajey Balaji V shares, “Dashashwamedh Ghat is soul enriching and makes your heart cry in pain when we see the pure and historical river being polluted endlessly. If you want to witness the Aarti at its best, make sure you reach the Ghat by 6. 30 and hire a boat and go to the other side and watch the spiritual magic unfold.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Pritesh Mehta adds, “It is one of the twelve jyotirling. Somebody told that person dying there is very lucky. One time every person should go there and make his life sacred. There real god of Mahadev is seated and give blessing to all person. This place is very spiritual and ancient temples are available.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Prateek Agrawal adds, “It's spectacular to see the conjunction of two great River Ganga and Yamuna, sand, birds and everything around. Anyone can easily hire a boat and go to the point where these two rivers are meeting each other and can take a dip to feel the holiness. While many things are good.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Samarth Srivastava adds, “There is only one thing more peaceful than staying at the ghats of the holy river Ganges, staying at the confluence(Sangam) of the Ganga, the Yamuna and the mythical Saraswati rivers. Spiritual leaders camping and giving sermons is a common sight. The administration takes good care of all basic amenities possible for a gathering so big, for a duration so long.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Abhay Parmar says, “The temple is very divine and unique, you feel the vibrations as soon as you enter the temple. The chanting of Jay Jagannath makes the atmosphere more spiritual. Best time to visit is just after bhog (2.30 pm) or after Ratri Shringar (9.30 pm) to avoid the whopping crowd.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sandhikshan Das shares, “This is the most important attraction of Puri trip. It is a very old temple and has nice inscriptions on it. The statues are made from neem wood and every year it is made newly during Rath Yatra in the rainy season.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Debjit Raha adds, “Lord Jagannath's temple is one of the most spiritual places in Puri. It is the heart of Puri. If you have been to Puri and not visited the temple, then you have not seen the real essence of Puri.
