Gangotri Kedarnath Badrinath Package
Gangotri Dham : Gangotri is not just a temple; it is the epitome of devotion to Goddess Ganga, who is believed to manifest herself in the holy form of the River Ganges. The current temple we see today was constructed by Amar Singh Thapa, the Gorkha General, in the early 18th century.
The birthplace of the River Ganges, known as Gaumukh, is a mere 18 kilometers from Gangotri. This sacred site can be reached through trekking, provided the weather conditions are favorable. Gaumukh holds immense significance for Hindus and is a major pilgrimage destination.
The Gangotri temple is open to devotees during the summer months, starting from May, and it closes its doors on the auspicious occasion of Diwali, just before the onset of severe winters. This closure marks the end of the temple's annual cycle, but its spiritual aura and significance remain eternally vibrant in the hearts of all who visit this divine abode.
Kedarnath Dham : Kedarnath, one of the twelve revered Jyotirlingas and the third stop on the Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand, sits majestically at an elevation of 3581 meters. This sacred temple is dedicated to the Sadashiv form of Lord Shiva. According to ancient legends, the Pandavas constructed the original Kedarnath temple after the great Mahabharata war. The temple we see today was rebuilt by the renowned Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th century AD.
Kedarnath holds a special place among the five revered temples dedicated to Lord Shiva in Uttarakhand, collectively known as Panch Kedar. The other four are Rudranath, Tungnath, Mad Maheshwar, and Kalpeshwar. Within the Kedarnath Peeth, you'll discover several sacred kunds (pools of water). Among these, Shiv Kund is considered the most significant, while Rudhir Kund is famous for its uniquely red-colored water.
Badrinath Dham : Badrinath, a revered temple and a vital stop on the Chardham Yatra of Uttarakhand, as well as a key component of the major Chardham Yatra of India, stands proudly between the Nar and Narayan mountain peaks, nestled along the banks of the Alaknanda river. It holds the distinction of being the foremost and most revered among the Panch Badri.
According to Hindu beliefs, Adi Guru Shankaracharya, in the 8th century, constructed these four sacred pilgrimage sites in four different directions across the country. This monumental effort was undertaken to revive the dwindling reputation of Hinduism and unite the nation in a common spiritual bond.
According to Hindu legends, Lord Vishnu engaged in a prolonged meditation in this very location, and to shield him from the harsh elements, Goddess Lakshmi transformed herself into a blueberry tree.
The Chardham Yatra, consisting of four of the holiest pilgrimage sites, is a journey of profound spiritual significance. It is widely believed that undertaking this sacred pilgrimage not only absolves one of their sins but also bestows the ultimate liberation, known as "moksha," breaking the cycle of birth and death.
