    Chardham Yatra

    (12 Days / 11 Nights)

    Up in the hills of Uttarakhand in the Gadhwal sector are the four holy abodes in the Himalayas which are usually referred to as "Chhota Char Dham of India". These include: Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Amongst the four sacred sites Kedarnath is dedicated to Lord Shiva, Badrinath is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Yamunotri and Gangotri are dedicated to the respective rivers Yamuna and Ganga (the holy Ganges). Doing a Chardham Yatra is considered as extremely pious thing for every Hindu. We at EziiTours are proud to bring you a complete experience in a well defined and delivered Chardham Yatra to you.

    Some Interesting Facts About Chardham
    Chardham is the name given to the four most divine pilgrimages of India comprising Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath located in the state of Uttarakhand. According to Hindu legends, undertaking a journey to the Chardham in Uttarakhand helps one to wash away sins and get Moksha.

    Chardham Yatra :
    As Hindu tradition depicts of Chardham Yatra, pilgrims undertake this holy journey from left to right. Pilgrimage to Chardham yatra begins from Yamunotri Temple, the westernmost shrine in the Garhwal dedicated to the Goddess Yamuna, before proceeding to Gangotri Temple which is devoted to Goddess Ganga, and then further moves to Kedarnath temple which stands as one of the 12 ?Jyotirlingas? of Lord Shiva and finally concludes at Badrinath temple which is devoted to Lord Vishnu.

    Chardham Representation :
    The sacred sites of the Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand are not allied to any single sect. Rather, it represents three major sectarians with the Vaisnava site at Badrinath, joined by a Saiva site at Kedarnath and two Devi sites at Yamunotri and Gangotri. So in essence the Chardham Yatra serves as confluence for multiple sects.

    Original Shrine of Lord Badri :
    The original shrine of Lord Badrinath was not where it is today in the Chardham Yatra. According to history, the original Badrinath idol was discovered by Adi Shankaracharya in the Alaknanda River and the temple of Lord Badrinath was built in the Garud Caves, which are located near the hot springs of Tapt Kund. Many centuries later, the king of Garhwal moved the shrine to its present location. Chardham Yatra is not completed till Lord Badri darshan is taken!

    Jalamagna Shivalinga :
    Located near Gangotri temple, Jalamagna Shivalinga is a natural rock Shivling which is visible only during the winter, when the level of the water goes down. This site is believed to be the place where Lord Shiva held Ganga in his matted locks. Visiting Jalamagna Shivalinga is considered extremely auspicious during the Chardham Yatra.

    Surya Kund :
    An important destination thats covered in the Chardham Yatra, located close to the freezing Yamunotri glacier, Surya Kund is another hot water spring which holds an important religious significance. The water of this spring is so hot that the Prasad is prepared in the water of kund only that too within just a few minutes. Interestingly enough, devotees who go for Chardham Yatra are even said to cook rice here in this hot water!

    Gauri Kund :
    Situated at a height of 6500 feet, Gauri Kund serves as the base camp for the pilgrims on their way to Kedarnath. It comprises a temple and a hot water spring dedicated to Goddess Gauri. According to legends, Gauri Kund is a place where Goddess Gauri, wife of Lord Shiva carried out her yogic practices. Gauri Kund is an important place to visit in Chardham Yatra.
