Gangotri"Take A Trip to The Tribal Beauty"

  • Sightseeing

     

    Gangotri Temple - The marble built 20 feet high temple of Gangotri is around 300 years old. This temple devoted to Goddess Ganga was built in the 18th century by a Gurkha commander Amar Singh Thapa.  In the 20th century, the Maharaja of Jaipur refurbished the shrine. The temple town of Gangotri is located just 97 km from Uttarkashi.  Gangotri is believed to be the site where Ganges descended to Earth on the matted locks of Lord Shiva. The place also houses the temple of Vishwanath and Kuteti Devi.

     

    Bhagirathi Shila - Bhagirathi Shila is the rock, where King Bhagirath is said to have meditated. This stone near the temple of Ganga signifies the site where Goddess Ganga first stepped down to earth.

     

    PandavGufa - The PandavGufa can be reached after a trek of 1.5 km from Gangotri. This very site is believed to be the place, where the Pandavas of Mahabharata meditated on their way to Kailash.

     

    GauriKund and Surya Kund - GauriKund and Surya Kund lie on either side of an iron bridge located half a kilometre ahead of the Gangotri Temple. Surya Kund is known for the Surya Kund waterfalls.

     

    JalmagnaShivling (Submerged Shivling) - This natural Shivling located near the Gangotri Temple is visible only during the winter, when the water level goes down. It is believed that at this very site, Lord Shiva held the river Ganges in his matted locks. JalmagnaShivling, which remains immersed in the Gangotri during summer, is one of the major attractions of Gangotri.
