Haridwar lies at the footsteps of Lord Shiva's hills, i.e., Shivaliks, in the Haridwar district of Uttaranchal Pradesh. Here Suryavanshi prince Bhagirath performed penance to salvage his ancestors' souls who perished due to sage Kapila's curse. The penance was answered and the river Ganga trickled forth from Lord Shiva's locks and its bountiful water revived sixty thousand sons of king Sagara. Continuing with the tradition, devout Hindus stand in Bhagirathi's or Ganga's sacred waters, praying for their departed elders salvation.
