HolidayIQ Reviewer Anbu Mathika says, “The dawn time is the best time to visit the temple as the crowd is comparatively less and you can easily get to do the darshan within half an hour. After worshipping, you can relish the tasty suji ka halwa that they serve at the end.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Sankar Narayanan adds, “The Harmandir Sahib is the holy place for the Sikhs. In the sanctum, the holy Granth Sahib is placed and worshipped. When you approach this holy place, you get the positive, soulful and peaceful vibration gripping you.”

HolidayIQ Reviewer Ajey Balaji V shares, “Vishwanath temple is bound to attract one like a flower beckoning a bee. The hustle and bustle around the temple, the hawkers' endless calls, colourful shops which sell trinkets and amulets, the meandering lanes and by lanes, is all set to make your visit or pilgrimage an unforgettable one. The evening aarti on the Dashashwamedh Ghat is soul enriching. If you want to witness the aarti at its best, make sure you reach the Ghat by 6.30pm and hire a boat and go to the other side and watch the spiritual magic unfold.”

4. Haridwar

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kamal Bahukhandi says, “Har Ki Pauri is one of the most important places in Haridwar and is famous for its evening pujas. If someone really wants to visit Haridwar they should definitely go and see the Har Ki Pauri evening puja. You will totally get devoted into that if you once attend that moment.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Himanshu Bahukhandi adds, “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 Nirupam Bhattacharya says, “A casual trek to Triund is what fascinates me and my wife. Motorable road ends at Galu temple from where you need to start walking.

HolidayIQ Reviewer Kanchan Raitani shares, “When I was looking for things to do and places to visit in McLeodganj, I came across this monastery for the first time. By then I had already read about the Nagoya monastery (Dalai Lama temple) and the Kalachakra temple right in the heart of Main Square and also the Gyuto monastery in Dharamshala. In my experience, the offbeat places I have visited have turned out to be the highlight of the trip rather than the cliche places which are filled with tourists. This is definitely one of those 'not to be missed' places.
