Misleading Information removed[edit]

Removed the line about Raja Man Singh of Amber -- " After his death, his ashes are also said to have been immersed at Brahma Kund by Mughal emperor Akbar himself.[1] " -Raja Man Singh died 8 years after the Akbar's death. How is it possible that Akbar immersed ManSingh's ashes. -Secondly, Jahangir (Akbar's successor) was not happy with Man Singh, He sent Man Singh to south India, where he died in a war. Two of his four queens were sati in Ileechpur (now in Amrawati and known as Achalpur) where he died. The other two queens performed Sati ritual along with his ashes. There is no such information that his ashes were ever brought to Haridwar.

Need to shift Translation pages[edit]

The नेपाल भाषा (Nepal Bhasa) and Tiếng Việt trnslated pages for Haridwar are attached with Hardwar page, instead of Haridwar. Does someone know how to fix them? Thanks! (Ekabhishek (talk) 06:34, 30 April 2008 (UTC))

== The article sounds a little as if out of the travel brochure... I have toned down the language in some places. Plan to make more changes in future.

Yup, I believe unbiased information should be the essence--Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut, which held its ground 08:46, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

Copy-vio[edit]

The title about SHRI RAM SHARNAM ASHRAM has been removed temporarily as it seemed too much like an advertisment, and does not offer any substantial info about this ashram. Do not use this space for advertising purposes. Update with care. Thanks--Ekabhishek 07:29, 24 April 2007 (UTC) --[[User:ekabhishek] ...............................

I believe I am seeing a copy-vio here.

"Organs of DYMT & Patanjali Yogpeeth(Trust)

What is Patanjali Yogpeeth (Phase-I)?

Whose heart doesn't move on seeing mankind suffering from dreadful diseases? When Pujya Swami Ramdev Ji saw this God's creation in the form of human-being... ... ... Failing which Patanjali Yogpeeth will not be responsible in any way. By: Dr. Avnish Upadhyay"

The above is exactly the same as in [1]. Not only could this be a possible copy-vio, it also sounds like an advertisement. In any case, it appears irrelevant to this article. Am deleting this now. If anyone thinks this can be reincluded, please explain your stance and then do it. --Madhu 05:50, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Also removed info about the Rishikul State Ayurvedic College, which could again be a copy-vio from [2]. --Madhu 05:54, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Hindu genealogy registers at Haridwar[edit]

Something that is not well known today to Indians and to those settled abroad, in an ancient custom detailed family genealolgies of Hindu families for the past several generations are kept by professonal Hindu Pandits of Haridwar in registers passed down to them over generations by their Pandit ancestors which are classified according to original districts and villages of ones ancestors, with special designated Pandit families being incharge of designated district registers, even for cases where ancestral districts and villages that have been left behind in Pakistan after Partition of India with Hindus having to migrate to India. It is not uncommon for one to find details of upto or more then ones seven past generations in these registers at Haridwar.

For centuries when Hindu ancestors visited the holy town of Haridwar for any purpose which may have mostly been for pilgrimage purposes or/and for cremation of their dead or for immersion of ashes and bones after cremation into the holy river Ganga of their kin as required by Hindu religious custom, it is an ancient custom to go to the Pundit who is incharge of ones family register and update the family genealogical tree with details of all marriages, births and deaths from ones extended joint family.

In present day India people visiting Haridwar are dumbfounded when Pundits out of the blue solicit them to come and update their very own ancestral geneolocical family tree, news travels like wildfire among the Pandits with ones familiy's designated Pandit being quickly notified of ones visit. Nowadays with Hindu joint family system having brocken down with people prefering more nuclear families, record keeping Pandists prefer visitors to Haridwar to come prepared after getting in touch with all of ones extended family and bringing all relevent details regarding ones ancestral district and village, names of grand parents and great grand parents and marriages, births and deaths that have occured in the extended family, even with as much details as possible of the familles married into.

Delete[edit]

Please delete this page, because is scarcely related with the suposed topic (a city) speaking only about a district and creating to much confusion. All the article is already pasted in Haridwar District. The info about the city is available in other wikipedia pages in languales like italian, catalan or so. --88.19.54.55 (talk) 15:37, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
