Due to the significance of this religious circuit, devotees from all over India and the world, want to visit here to experience the endless bliss. Char Dhams are hustling and busy with activity in the period of the summer months in India, as thousand of devotees embark upon the holy journey. The picturesque environment of the mountainous region is simply enthralling, giving the Chardham devotees a perfect occasion to let everything go them by filling their lungs with fresh air. Besides, these otherwise silent and tranquil locales resound with the names of the Lord as the pilgrims advance towards their destination.
In Char Dham yatra devotees visit to four Hindu religious places in Uttarakhand state of India. Holy Himalayas up in the cloudy heights of the grand Garhwal Himalayas that decorate the magnificent state of Uttarakhand, wait for a rejuvenating spiritual experience for the pious. These are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Badrinath and Kedarnath. Located in the route of magnificent Himalayas, these four places are the main pilgrimage places of religious activity in north India. The Chardham yatra begin from Yamunotri, afterwards going on to Gangotri and finally to Kedarnath and Badrinath.
Between the four Char Dhams, Yamunotri and Gangotri are devoted to goddesses Yamuna and Ganga correspondingly. In contrast, Kedarnath is devoted to Lord Shiva whereas Badrinath is devoted to Lord Vishnu. Besides this, people also travel to Hemkund Sahib in the neighborhood, which is one of the highest situated religious places in the country. Therefore, pilgrims visit all these places in aspiration of washing away their sins and to attain salvation, by the blessings of the Lord.
