Pilgrimages In Uttarakhand

30 June / 4:56 PM

Uttarakhand is the 'abode of gods' because of the uncountable ancient temples situated here. Every mountain, every rock and every stream of Uttarakhand is somewhat associated with the mythological background of India.

It is not as though Uttarakhand is a pilgimage destination exclusively for Hindus – there are several important shrines related to other religions too, keeping in line with the secular traditions of our country. These include Piran Kaliyar Sharif near Roorkee, Hemkund Sahib, Nanak Matta Sahib, Ritha Metha Sahib, the Mind Rolling Monastery and its Buddha Stupa in Dehradun.

Main Attraction: The Char Dhams ( Gangotri , Yamunotri , Badrinath , Kedarnath ), Panch Badri , Panch Kedar , Kumbh Mela and Nanda Devi Raj Jaat Yatra .
