Several public spaces in Haridwar, including walls, bridges and buildings, have been painted with episodes from Ramayana, Shiva Purana and other religious Hindu texts. Along with these artistic depictions from mythology, the images of Hindu sages on the walls of Haridwar are reflective of this town being a major attraction for ascetics.
