Bharat Mata Mandir, popularly known as the Mother India Temple, is a noted religious site in Haridwar. This temple is devoted to Bharat Mata and was constructed by the famous religious guru, Swami Satyamitranand Giri. The late Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi, inaugurated this temple in 1983. This eight-storeyed temple is located at a height of 180 ft.
Each floor of the shrine is dedicated to different Hindu deities and freedom fighters. The most prominent amongst all is the idol of Bharat Mata on the first floor. The second floor features the Shoor Mandir, a tribute to the dedicated heroes of India while the third floor's Matru Mandir beautifully honours the great women of India. The fourth floor is dedicated to the great Indian saints, and the fifth floor displays the religions, history and beauty of different parts of India. Various forms and incarnations of Goddess Shakti and Lord Vishnu can be seen on the sixth and seventh floor respectively. The eighth floor is a treat for both the nature enthusiasts and the spiritual souls as it holds a shrine of Lord Shiva from which one can witness an exceptional picturesque view of the Himalayas, Haridwar and Sapta Sarovar.
