Up in the hills of Uttarakhand in the Gadhwal sector are the four holy abodes in the Himalayas which are usually referred to as "Chhota Char Dham of India". These include: Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. Amongst the four sacred sites Kedarnath is dedicated to Lord Shiva, Badrinath is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Yamunotri and Gangotri are dedicated to the respective rivers Yamuna and Ganga (the holy Ganges). Doing a Chardham Yatra is considered as extremely pious thing for every Hindu. We at EziiTours are proud to bring you a complete experience in a well defined and delivered Chardham Yatra to you.

Some Interesting Facts About Chardham

Chardham is the name given to the four most divine pilgrimages of India comprising Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath located in the state of Uttarakhand. According to Hindu legends, undertaking a journey to the Chardham in Uttarakhand helps one to wash away sins and get Moksha.

Chardham Yatra :

As Hindu tradition depicts of Chardham Yatra, pilgrims undertake this holy journey from left to right. Pilgrimage to Chardham yatra begins from Yamunotri Temple, the westernmost shrine in the Garhwal dedicated to the Goddess Yamuna, before proceeding to Gangotri Temple which is devoted to Goddess Ganga, and then further moves to Kedarnath temple which stands as one of the 12 ?Jyotirlingas? of Lord Shiva and finally concludes at Badrinath temple which is devoted to Lord Vishnu.

Chardham Representation :

The sacred sites of the Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand are not allied to any single sect. Rather, it represents three major sectarians with the Vaisnava site at Badrinath, joined by a Saiva site at Kedarnath and two Devi sites at Yamunotri and Gangotri. So in essence the Chardham Yatra serves as confluence for multiple sects.

Original Shrine of Lord Badri :

The original shrine of Lord Badrinath was not where it is today in the Chardham Yatra. According to history, the original Badrinath idol was discovered by Adi Shankaracharya in the Alaknanda River and the temple of Lord Badrinath was built in the Garud Caves, which are located near the hot springs of Tapt Kund. Many centuries later, the king of Garhwal moved the shrine to its present location. Chardham Yatra is not completed till Lord Badri darshan is taken!

Jalamagna Shivalinga :

Located near Gangotri temple, Jalamagna Shivalinga is a natural rock Shivling which is visible only during the winter, when the level of the water goes down. This site is believed to be the place where Lord Shiva held Ganga in his matted locks. Visiting Jalamagna Shivalinga is considered extremely auspicious during the Chardham Yatra.

Surya Kund :

An important destination thats covered in the Chardham Yatra, located close to the freezing Yamunotri glacier, Surya Kund is another hot water spring which holds an important religious significance. The water of this spring is so hot that the Prasad is prepared in the water of kund only that too within just a few minutes. Interestingly enough, devotees who go for Chardham Yatra are even said to cook rice here in this hot water!

Gauri Kund :

Situated at a height of 6500 feet, Gauri Kund serves as the base camp for the pilgrims on their way to Kedarnath. It comprises a temple and a hot water spring dedicated to Goddess Gauri. According to legends, Gauri Kund is a place where Goddess Gauri, wife of Lord Shiva carried out her yogic practices. Gauri Kund is an important place to visit in Chardham Yatra.

Kedar is another name of Lord Shiva, the protector and the destroyer. According to legend, the Pandavas after having won over the Kaurava in the Kurukshetra war, felt guilty of having killed their own brothers and sought the blessings of Lord Shiva for redemption. He eluded them repeatedly and while fleeing took refuge at Kedarnath in the form of a bull.

On being followed he dived into the ground, leaving his hump on the surface. The remaining portions of Lord Shiva appeared at four other places and are worshipped there as his manifestations. The arms appeared at Tungnath, the face at Rudranath, the belly at Madhmaheshwar and his locks (hair) with head at Kalpeshwar. Kedarnath and the four abovementioned shrines are treated as Panch Kedar.

VERY well planned tour.... awesome facility.....accommodation and food service is good.....you guys are doing good job..... I enjoyed lot.....thank you EziiTours.....

EziiTours बरोबर मी गिरनार वारी केली होती...कधीही न विसरता येईल असा सुंदर अनुभव ह्या वारी मधे आला... मी व्यक्तीश: चेतन चे आभार मानतो की त्याने ह्या ठिकाणाचे दर्शन उत्तम रितीने घडवुन आणले.. चेतनच्या पुढील सहलिंना शुभेच्छा..

सौराष्ट्रात काठेवाड प्रांतात जुनागड संस्थानात गिरनार पर्वत स्थित आहे..साधू संतांच्या वास्तव्याने पुनीत झालेल्या या पर्वतावर दत्तगुरूंचा नित्य निवास असतो.दत्तगुरूंच्या कृपाशिर्वादाची अनुभूति घेण्यासाठी गिरनारला इजी टूरसोबत जरूर भेट द्या. जय गिरनारी पार लगा दो नैय्या हमारी

सर्वात प्रथम तुमचे मनापासून आभार की तुमच्यासोबत मला द्वारका-सोमनाथ-गिरनार ही ट्रिप करायला मिळाली. खुप दिवसांपासून गिरनार दर्शन करायचं मनात होतं ते तुमच्यामुळे शक्य झाले. बाकी तुमच्या सर्व्हिसबद्दल सांगायचे तर खूप उत्तम दर्जाची सर्व्हिस मिळाली. एक धार्मिक ट्रिप असून सुद्धा कुठल्याही प्रकारची कमतरता नव्हती. पुण्यापासूनचा एकूण प्रवास, जेवण, हॉटेल या सर्वांची खुप उत्तम सोय तुम्ही केली, कमी पैसे घेऊनसुद्धा यांच्या दर्जात कुठल्याही प्रकारची तडजोड केली नाही. ...

EziiTours provided us with an excellent set of facilities at affordable rates. One can say " A guaranteed dream journey with a divine eperience." Superb!!!
