In simple terms, Char Dham conveys the presence of four sacred abodes. But it got a great significance in Hindu religion. Chardham Yatra is one of the most devoted and featured part of a spiritual tour by visiting four glorious shrines including Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and lastly the Badrinath Dham. A visit to these holy shrines together forms the Chota Chardham Yatra in India. All these famous sacred destinations are being located in the great Himalayas of Uttarakhand region.Land of Uttarakhand is also known as Dev Bhumi (Land of Gods) because of the various tales of divine beings finding its permanent home in the ever-flowing rivers, river confluences, shrines, rocks, caves and, most importantly, in people’s faith. The temples of Chota Char Dham are located in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand known as Yamunotri and Gangotri which were located in Uttarkashi district, Kedarnath is in Rudraprayag district and Badrinath is in Chamoli district.

These are mystical places in the Himalayas that are visited from left to right. Thus, the journey of Chota Char Dham must be started from Yamunotri, then Gangotri, then Kedarnath and concluding the journey at Badrinath. Kedarnath is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Shiva in India which is considered to be the main places of worship of Lord Shiva. Badrinath is one among the ‘108’ Divya Deshams of Vaishnava. This glorified expedition starts from Haridwar, the perfect gateway to God and consider being the door of spirituality and eternity to achieve peace of mind body and soul. It is also believed that it is the path to Moksha.

Going to the four sacred places would take you through the most picturesque landscape involving dense mountain forests, meadows, large valleys, waterfalls, rivers, river confluences and flowers. With plentiful of nature’s presence in every nook and corner of Uttarakhand, pilgrimage in the Himalayas becomes more rejuvenating and spiritually uplifting.
