Haridwar is predominantly a religious place and there isn't much for art-enthusiasts to explore. Yet, if your impulses insist on somehow or the other looking for some unique experience that comes very close to what you are seeking, here is our pick for you.

  • Gurukul Kangri Archaeological Museum
    This museum falls under Gurukul Kangri University, and was established in the times of the Britishers in 1945. As a matter of fact, it is the only important house of art and culture in this town and therefore, all the more important. The museum is a rich repository of rare statues, exquisite paintings, coins, manuscripts, pre-historic artefacts and much more. Moreover, the museum has an excellent library that is of great use to both scholars and art-enthusiasts alike.
    The authorities organize lectures and movie screenings every now and then in the museum premises. It remains open from 10 am to 5 pm on all days except Sundays and public holidays.

The rest, you can continue exploring for yourself. Do inform us if you bump into something extraordinary! Though, chances are that you will more or less be drawn to the religious places in Haridwar eventually.
