Gangotri Temple is a revered Hindu pilgrimage site located in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, India. It is situated on the banks of the holy river Ganges at an altitude of 3,042 meters (9,980 feet) above sea level. The temple is dedicated to Goddess Ganga, who is worshipped as the personification of the sacred river.
The temple is believed to have been built in the 18th century by Amar Singh Thapa, a Gorkha commander, and has undergone several renovations since then. The current structure of the temple was built in the 20th century and is made of white granite.
The main deity of the temple is a 50 cm high murti (idol) of Goddess Ganga, which is housed in a small garbha griha (sanctum sanctorum) decorated with intricate carvings and paintings. The temple also houses idols of other Hindu deities such as Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, and Lord Vishnu.
The Gangotri Temple is open to visitors only during the months of April to November, as the region becomes inaccessible during the winter months due to heavy snowfall. The temple receives a large number of pilgrims and tourists every year, who come to offer prayers and take a dip in the holy river. It is also the starting point of the popular trek to Gaumukh, the source of the river Ganges.
Yamunotri Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to Goddess Yamuna, located in the western region of the Garhwal Himalayas in the Uttarkashi district of the Indian state of Uttarakhand. It is one of the four shrines collectively called the Chota Char Dham, which also includes Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath.
The temple is situated at an altitude of 3,293 meters above sea level, near the source of the Yamuna River, which originates from the Champasar Glacier. The temple is surrounded by snow-capped peaks and dense forests, providing a stunning view of the Himalayas. The temple is accessible by a trek of 13 km from the town of Hanuman Chatti, which is located at a distance of around 220 km from Dehradun.
The temple complex houses the main shrine of Yamuna, which is made of black marble and adorned with silver umbrellas. The temple also has a hot water spring, called the Surya Kund, which is used for cooking rice and potatoes that are offered to the deity. Pilgrims also take a dip in the hot water spring, as it is believed to have medicinal properties.
The temple opens on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya in the month of May and closes on the day of Diwali in October or November. The temple witnesses a large number of devotees during the Char Dham Yatra season, which usually begins in the month of April and ends in November.
Yamunotri Temple holds great significance among Hindus, as it is believed that taking a dip in the holy waters of the Yamuna River washes away one's sins and grants spiritual purification. The temple is also associated with the legend of Yamuna, who is believed to be the daughter of Surya, the Sun God, and is considered a symbol of purity and sanctity in Hindu mythology.
