The morning Havan at Namaste Dwaar is a favourite amongst guests.
Havan, Yagya, or Homa is referred to as a fire ritual, where we provide herbal sacrifices to the holy fire. The fire is said to destroy the offering and purify the environment. The chanting of mantras creates a revitalizing and rejuvenating effect on body and mind.
At Namaste Dwaar we offer a daily Havan to the divine. The Havan Kund is located in the wellness wing. It is surrounded by pristine greens, the Ayurveda-shalas, and the Satvik Kitchen. It is close to the organic farms as well.
Many of our guests partake in the daily Havan ritual, some for faith and some out of curiosity. Each leaves fulfilled and peaceful.

Helping to sustain a timeless tradition, we honor the rich history of Indian artisans who have mastered their crafts through patience, practice, and hard work.
Since crafts have always been an integral part to the Indian ethos, and since art is something that stems through all facets of rural life, our property not only showcases craftsmanship but provides an experiential facility for it. Inspired by the rural market place, the Namaste Haat is an experiential facility that allows for you to interact with and learn from local craft makers. We have various types of skilled artisans from all over India for you to engage with: potters, weavers, carpenters, metalworkers, amongst a number of other crafts-makers, are always available to show and teach you their skills! Pottery and spinning yard are great hit with youngsters and children of all ages.
Ganga Aarti is perhaps the most important event related to the holy river. It involves the offering puja to the river Ganga by chanting of hymns, offering her fire and flower. The idea is to show gratitude and respect to the river, and ask for her blessings.
The grand Ganga Aarti at Rishikesh and Haridwar are a busy affair. We are blessed to have the Ganga pass close to our property at a distance of about 10 minutes. We organise private Ganga Aarti for patrons to pray in peace. It is especially a hit with families wanting our elders to attend the ceremony without subjecting them to the crowds of the busy cities.
We are surrounded by lush farmlands and villages. We offer you to spend a day in the farms, with the village folk and reconnect with a simple way of living.
For all those who have grown up listening to stories of village life from the elders in the family, for all those whose children think milk comes from “mother dairy”, for all those who would like to slow down for a day and witness life at a different pace. Another favorite with our guests.
