Bhaironghati or Bhairon Ghati is a small settlement in Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand State, situated close to the confluence of Jadh Ganga and Bhagirathi River. It is another amazing tourist destination in Gangotri which is approximately 10 km from Gangotri town. It is said that visiting this temple is a must after visiting the Gangotri Temple. Bhairav ghatti is surrounded by trees which is so dense that it seems like a forest.
There is a Bhairav Nath Temple well surrounded by dense forests at Bhairon Ghati which is worth visiting. About 3 km after Bhaironghati is another small town called Lanka Chatti, which boasts of Asia’s highest bridge over the Jhanvi River at an elevation of 2789 meters above the sea level.
Bhairav is considered a form of Shiva, who guards a Shakti Peeth against the attacks of enemies and that is why one can find Bhairav temples constructed nearby all Shakthi Peeths. Bhairava temples or shrines are generally situated within or near most Jyotirlinga temples, the sacred twelve shrines honouring Shiva across India. The colourful Bhagirathi (Ganga) is seen at the Bhairon Ghati where it is joined by a blue river Jahnavi or Jadh Ganga coming from Geelong range.
