      About Gangotri

      Gangotri is one of the main religious tourist places among the Char Dham Chota Chardham pilgrimage circuit. Gangotri is located in Uttarkashi and also considered as the origin place of River Ganga. The history of Gangotri is centuries years old that says Goddess Ganga transformed herself into a river for making the forefathers of King Bhagiratha free from a curse after the years of penance by Bhagiratha. This popular pilgrim site is situated at an altitude of 3042m , emitting a highly pious aura. It keeps a very special place in Hindu pilgrims and must visit the place once in a lifetime.

      The Ganga river originates from Gangotri Glacier and it is known as Bhagirathi until it merges with the Alaknanda River in Devprayag. Alaknanda and Bhagirathi join to form the mighty Ganga River in Devprayaga and from there it flows in its full force and known as Ganga.

      The whole region is decorated with the snow-clad mountains in the vicinity and the pure crystal water of river Ganga. The place is mainly dominated by vegetarian food and Vaishnava culture which advocates a vegan lifestyle and very strict against non-vegetarian food and alcoholic drinks. The place is home to many beautiful temples and saints of the Hindu religion. The most prominent temple is the Gangotri Temple , dedicated to Goddess Ganga. Gangotri Temple opens at the end of the April month or first week of May and it gets closed at the time of Diwali in October or November. It remains closed for the rest of the year as the place is prone to heavy snowfall.
