A real nice man . Neelkanth Mahadev, his name meaning "blue throat", one of Shiva's name. This image was taken on the banks of the river Ganga in Haridwar.
Haridwar located in the foothills of the Himalayas, represents the point where the Ganga reaches the plains. Haridwar is an ancient pilgrimage site, held in reverence for centuries. Several temples and ashrams dot this town and a visit to Haridwar is like stepping into a totally different world.
