One among the many sacred sights of Haridwar is Gau Ghat. Just like a dip in the holy Ganges, one can experience a feeling of wellness after taking a dip in this Gau Ghat. A dip in this holy river is known to pardon the sin of slaughtering cows.
The Gau Ghat is also known to offer solace to those who have lost their near and dear ones. Offering of rose petals and coconuts ensure peace to the souls of ancestors.
A fact not known to many is that the ashes of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi were immersed in this Ghat.
