A haven for lovers of history & spirituality!

If you are charmed by all-things mythology, we have a great trip planned for you! Finding equal reverence in stories from Hinduism and Jainism, Hastinapur is a heavenly escape from your jostling routines in Lucknow. Not just for a seat of significant religious relevance, the town of Hastinapur located in the Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh is also loved by tourists for its blissful natural heritage!

A haven for lovers of history & spirituality!


Resting on the right banks of River Ganga, Hastinapur has been the historical capital of the Mahabharat's Kuru Kingdom. In addition to this, the ancient city also finds repetitive mentions in the Jain texts and is believed to be the birthplace of three Tirthathankaras. The religious importance of the region was further elevated during the British time when the town's local king established a number of temples in the region. If religious places bring you the needed calm and tranquillity, Hastinapur is surely a haven for all your desires!

Amongst the most famous Jain temples in town are Shri Shwetambar Jain Ashtapad Teerth, Kailash Parvat Rachna, Jambudweep Jain Teerth, Digambar Jain Mandir and others. Adding to this, the magnificent exteriors and magical interiors of Karna Temple and Pandeshwar Temple will definitely win your heart away. And if your trail for spirituality leaves you seeking more of it, you can't miss the Bhai Dharam Singh Gurudwara in Saifpur, 2.5 Km from Hastinapur.


The town also boasts of having a wildlife sanctuary, sprawling over a stretch of 2073 sq km which houses exquisite varieties of flora and fauna. If you have a heart that craves that best of nature, you simply can't miss this!

All you need to know for your trip-


If you are somebody who rejoices long road trips, a 9-hour card-ride from Lucknow to Hastinapur may help you peddle through your long-dreamt plans. But keeping your convenience in mind, we would suggest you, take a train to Meerut or a flight to Delhi, and then navigate your way to Hastinapur. The historical town witnesses a climate quite similar to Lucknow and makes for a soothing visit during autumn or late winter months.
