Hurdwar (more accurately HARDWAR, i.e. Gate of Hari), also called GANGADWARA (Ganges Gate), an Indian city, is celebrated on account of the pilgrimages which are made to it. More than two million people from all parts of India resort to this place to take the sacred bath in the Ganges (q.v.), that flows by the side of it. As in Mecca, the occasion is also improved for business purposes, and great fairs are held annually in April. — Brockhaus, Conv. Lex. 8, 167-8.
