Pawan Dham Haridwar – A Photo Blog
The state of Uttarakhand is one of the most picturesque states of India. Its natural beauty enthralls while its ancient and mystical trail that leads right up to the ancient sages who wandered in the Himalayan regions of the state intrigues, fascinates, and leaves one spiritually enriched. One such lesser-known place is Pawan Dham Haridwar.
Places like Kedarnath, Badrinath, Yamunotri, Gangotri, Rishikesh, and Haridwar are all endowed with the aura of spirituality by the presence of ancient and sacred temples. But there are many lesser-known places that are glittering gems of faith and spirituality spread across the state. Places like Patal Bhuvaneshwar, Saptarishi Ashram, and many others ensure that the mystical journey in Uttarakhand never ends.
Pawan Dham Haridwar – A Shimmering Spectacle
On a recent visit to Rishikesh when we explored the town as well as Haridwar and its vicinity, we came upon a place that literally shimmered before us. This was Pawan Dham, a unique temple made of glass and mirrors to stunning effect.
Pawan Dham is located in Haridwar not very far from the famous Har Ki Pauri. The temple has two major halls with images of Hindu deities and exquisite mirror work. The deities are placed in rooms with walls inlaid with mirrors which result in spectacular effects. If you see the image in the mirrors on the two side walls you see an infinite number of reflections that looks really spectacular.
