Char Dham is referred to the four Hindu pilgrimage sites in the holy state of Uttarakhand of India. These four pilgrimage sites are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath. These sites are nestled in the lap of majestic Himalayas, these four sites are the epicenter of religious activity in north India. Traditionally, the Chardham Yatra is undertaken from the west to the east. Thus, the yatra starts from Yamunotri, then proceeding to Gangotri and finally to Kedarnath and Badrinath.
Perched atop the Bandar Punch Parvat, at an altitude of 3291 m, Yamunotri is the abode of goddess Yamuna. It is the westernmost shrine of the Char Dham Yatra and devotees start the yatra by visiting this site first. Yamunotri is the source of the sacred river Yamuna that originates here, though the actual glacier is located further ahead and is not easily accessible.
The Gangotri Temple is dedicated to goddess Ganga who took the form of a river to wash away the sins of King Bhagirath’s ancestors. Known as Bhagirathi here, the river is later known as Ganga, as it cascades down from here. The holy river originates at the Gaumukh glacier, which is located about 18 km further ahead from the Gangotri temple. Many enthusiasts trek to the glacier each year and it is known to be one of challenging treks.
Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the Kedarnath temple is the most popular amongst the Shiva temples in India. It is believed that since Shiva is a hermit, his abode in Kedarnath is the remotest of all. And truly, the shrine situated at an altitude of 3584 m near the Chorabari Glacier in Garhwal Himalayas, is not easily accessible.
The Badrinath temple is dedicated to Lord Badrinarayan, who is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. It is one of the most sacred temples for the Hindus. Like the Kedarnath temple, the Badrinath temple is also an ancient temple built by Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th century. There’s a Tapt Kund, or natural hot water spring, in the premises of the temple, where devotees take a holy dip before entering the shrine.
