Also, inside the temple, there is a Shivlinga which is 56 cm high and having the elevation towards the south. As per belief, the tour to Gangotri is incomplete without visiting this temple, and therefore, this temple is highly important. Out of the temple, there is Nandi Baba guarding the temple premises.

Shakti Temple: The Shakti temple of Uttarkashi is one of the famous and holy temples in Hinduism. This temple directly belongs to Mata Shakti. Therefore, a place where Mata herself listens to you and helps you. Inside the temple, there is a trident that is 6 m tall, and 90 cm in diameter. As per devotees, if you try moving this Trishul with all your body weight, you can’t any success, but if you try the same with just your fingertips, you can easily do it. It’s really a miracle if true. About this Trishul, there is a belief that it’s the original weapon of Goddess Durga that she threw to kill demons. Therefore, you must visit this place at least once.

Char Dham Yatra

The Char Dham Yatra is one of Uttarakhand, India’s most well-known religious yatra. Uttarakhand, the Land of Gods or Devbhoomi, is home to many temples. This Yatra takes you to four sacred locations high up in the Himalayas: Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath. Every Hindu’s greatest desire is to do the yatra of the holy sites at least once in their lifetime to find salvation (Moksha).

Every year, the high-altitude temple closes for around six months. They open in the summer (April or May) and close when winter arrives (October or November). It is believed that the Char Dham Yatra should be done clockwise. Thus, the yatra begins in Yamunotri and continues to Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath. You might finish the yatra by air (helicopter services are available) or by road.

The Yamunotri temple, located in the Uttarkashi area near the source of the Yamuna River, is dedicated to Goddess Yamuna, the second-most holy river in India after the Ganga. Gangotri, the shrine to the goddess Ganga, the most revered river in India, is located in the Uttarkashi district. The shrine of Lord Shiva, Kedarnath, is situated in the Rudraprayag district. Named for Lord Vishnu, Badrinath is the location of the revered Badrinarayan Temple.

The journey to the Char Dhams is an experience that will last a lifetime. It is nature in all its grandeur, vast and overpowering yet modest in its exquisite beauty. To organize your Char Dham yatra, review our Chardham Yatra packages and itinerary, and contact our professionals.

Shree Amarnath and Vaishno Devi Yatra

Among the most sacred sites in Sanatan Dharma is the Holy Amarnath Cave in Kashmir. At an elevation of more than 3,658 meters (12,000 feet), the cave temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is believed that the Amarnath Cave temple dates back over 5,000 years.

There is the Amarnath Ice Lingam of Lord Shiva within the main Amarnath Cave. The month of May through August is when this naturally occurring ice lingam gets bigger. It is the period of the yearly pilgrimage and celebration of the Amarnath Lingam, which attracts religious people from all over the world. The Amarnath Lingam grows and shrinks in tandem with the moon’s phases, reaching its maximum size during the celebration in summer.

This is the cave where, in Hindu legend, Lord Shiva revealed to his celestial consort, Mother Parvati, the meaning of life and eternity. Lord Ganesha and Mother Parvati are represented by two other ice structures found within the cave. Because of its religious significance and popularity, each year approximately 400,000 Hindus travel here during the 45-day season that falls during the Hindu month of Shravan. They usually begin the walk from the town named Pahalgam and walk for 4-5 days to reach the holy cave.

The sacred cave temple of Mata Vaishnodevi is situated in the Trikuta hills, 13 km from Katra, at a height of 1560 m above sea level. In Hindu mythology, Durga is a Goddess who takes the form of Vaishno Devi, also called Mata Rani. Each year, hundreds of pilgrims flock to this holy temple seeking blessings and showing their unwavering faith in Mata Rani.

Northern India is home to these Holy Temples, yet getting there is a challenge. Every step is worthwhile because of the Darshan in these temples and the scenery. Darshan at these two magnificent temples will make you feel heavenly and blessed, and the splendor of Kashmir and Amritsar will astound you.
