Gangotri Attractions - 8 Hidden Gems of Gangotri

Best Places to visit in Gangotri, Tourist Places

Gangotri is one of the major religious places for Hindus amongst the (four) Char Dham pilgrimage areas. Gangotri is located in Uttarkashi district and is dedicated to the Goddess Ganga. The river is also famous as Ganges. According to the myths, there is a long history of Gangotri which dates back to centuries when Goddess Ganga transformed herself in the form of river. The major reason behind the transformation into river is to dissolve the sins of King Bhagirath's forefathers, following his sacrament. In the 18th century, Gangotri Temple was built by a Gorkha Commander that stands at an altitude of almost 3042 meters. Here in the temple, several religious rituals are performed by the pujaris which include the Arti ceremony. The holy river Ganges originated from the Gangotri glacier. Here it is known as Bhagirathi, when the river passes Devaprayag and is merged into the river Alaknanda, only then is it called the Ganga.
