Visitors: 116

There is a relevance of Char dham yatra in Hinduism and one of the principal points is that the sins of the past, present and the future are washed with this kind of yatra or trip. All these things are mentioned in the scriptures or the ancient texts of Hinduism. Before going for the char dham yatra, you need to know exactly what the char dham is. As per the scriptures of Hinduism, the four principal spots of Chardham are in the Himalayan belt are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath. The sanctity of these spots cannot be described in the words and one feels that the heaven has literally come down on the face of the earth. There is a concept of left to right circumambulation as mentioned in the scriptures. This yatra has to be performed as per the proper direction of the parikrama in accordance with the Hindu Philosophy. You need to do this kind of yatra by taking the proper measures and the Garhwal range of the Himalayas will provide you with the splendid adventure. You need to be prepared in the proper manner otherwise this pilgrimage will prove to be cumbersome and it will be a hectic experience.

If you want to see the most beautiful view during the char dham yatra, you should visit these places in the month of September. This is indeed the exotic season after rains and provides you with the finest views of the natural pristinity. The best thing about the hills of Garhwal is that you will always feel the freshness of nature and the beauty of the belt will fill your heart. The first spot of Char dham yatra is the Yamunotri and this is the place of origination of river Yamuna. There is a wonderful temple here and you need to worship the divya shila before entering this temple. The next spot from this place is the Gangotri and you will find the temple of Goddess Ganga here. There is a pious stone at this place and it is believed that the King Bhagiratha worshipped Lord Shiva at this place. This is why the sacred river Ganga is also known as Bhagirathi.

In the chardham yatra, Kedarnath is the 3rd spot of eminence in the pilgrimage and is the place where Lord Shiva is worshipped in the firm of Jyotirlinga also called the linga of light. There is a solid grey stone and the temple has been build with the help of these stones. The sight of the Kedarnath range is itself a mesmerizing experience. You will feel the divinity and the infilling of the spirituality when you are in Kedarnath. The fourth in the list is Badrinath and is the place of Lord Vishnu. This is a place of utmost importance when it comes to the tour of char dham. It is the place where Shankaracharya came to know about the previous births and the path of salvation. You have the temple of Badrinath on river Alaknanda. It will be better if you take the Char dham yatra map with you during the trip.
