Char Dham, the four sacred spots are considered the most sacred of all pilgrimages. It is strongly believed that undertaking this journey will not only wash away your sins but also release you from the cycle of birth and death.

The temple devoted to goddess Yamuna at Yamunotri attracts many tourists. The temple remains closed during the winter months of Nov. to April. The holy thermal springs at Jankichatti, which are 7 kms away is also a famous tourist attraction. For reaching Yamunotri, one has to undertake a 220 km journey from Rishikesh to Hanumanchatti, where the motorable road ends. The remaining 13 km journey has to be covered on foot or on ponies.

Gangotri, the second sacred place on the chardham yatra is visited by hundred thousands of pilgrims every year. The 18th century temple was constructed by Gorkha General Amar Singh Thapa. There are many stories attached to this holy spot like the temple is near the spot where the goddess Ganga is said to have first descended on earth from heaven, in answer to the prayers of King Bhagriath. It is believed that Lord Shiva received Ganga into his locks to break the great force of her fall. From there it emerged into many streams and the one which started from Gangotri was called Bhagirathi. The Pandavas, it is said, came here to perform the great 'Deva Yajna' to atone for the death of their kinsmen in the epic battle of Mahabharata. Other tourist attraction besides the temple is Gaumukh located at a distance of 18 kms from Gangotri. Pilgrims also trek to Nandanvan, Tapovan (6 km from Gaumukh) and Kedartal (18 km) from Gangotri.

Kedarnath dham, one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva, is a scenic spot situated against the backdrop of the majestic Sri Kedarnathji range. Kedar is another name of Lord Shiva. According to legend, the Pandavas after having won over the Kauravas in the Kurukshetra war, felt guilty of having killed their own brothers and sought the blessings of Lord Shiva for redemption here.

The last holy spot on this yatra is Badrinath, one of the most revered Hindu shrines of India. Encircled by a beautiful valley, the Badrinath Temple is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. May to October every year the temple usually remains open. Built by Adi Guru Shankaracharya the philosopher-saint of the 8th century, the temple has been renovated several times due to damage by avalanches.
