Pilgrimage to the char dhams are considered to attain salvation. Two of the most revered Char Dhams, Kedarnath and Badrinath are among the popular yatras undertaken by pilgrims. The holy shrines settled in Uttarakhand is blessed with divinity as well as picturesque beauty of mountains.
Badrinath was re-established as a main pilgrimage site by Adi Shankara in the ninth century. The temple in Badrinath is also a holy pilgrimage site for Hindus and specially for Vaishnavites. Badrinath is also gateway to several mountaineering missions headed to mountains like Nilkantha. Badrinath is a divine town and a Nagar Panchayat in Chamoli district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is the most significant of the four sites in India's Char Dham pilgrimage and gets its name from the divine temple of Badrinath.
At Kedarnath there are several Kunds (pools, tanks) that are known for their religious significans - shivkund, Retkund, hanskund, Udakkund, Rudhirkund are the most important. A little away from Kedarnath is a temple dedicated to Bhaironathji who is ceremoniously worshipped at the opening & closing of Kedarnath. The belief is that Bhairavnathji protects this land from evil during the time when temple of Kedarnath is closed. During the winters, the shrine is submerged in snow & hence is closed. Fortunate are those who have good weather, but twice blessed are those who are at Kedarnath on a moonlit night- the snow peak gleams like hundred silver pinnacles atop the glittering mountains.
The intense meditation made Ganga to descend from heaven and in order that the earth is not flooded, it remained suspended in the Coils of Lord Shiva's hair. Shiva pleased with King Bhagirath, released Ganga in seven streams - the most sacred streams - the most sacred streams on earth came to be known as Bhagirathi. King Sagar's 60,000 sons' ashes were touched with Ganga water and thus they were bestowed with eternal rest in heaven.
