Haridwar: The First Bathing. Uttaranchal

The first bathing of the baby in the sacred Ganges, in Haridwar, in the State of Uttaranchal. The frightened baby must have been rather cold, as I personally verified.

Haridwar has also been called Gangadvar, meaning 'Door of the Ganges' as it is here that the sacred river Ganges leaves the mountains to flow out upon the Indian plains
