Himalayas are considered ‘Abode of Divine’ in India and indeed, many of the ancient temples are situated on hilltops or mountain sides. Though not much of a sight in terms of architecture, these temples mostly lure tourists with promises of fulfilling the prayers and wishes of true devotees, or curing them of certain diseases. You may find it amazing how thousands and lakhs of devotees brave the difficult trek of Amarnath Yatra every year to see the natural formation of ‘Shiva Linga’ in ice.
Vaishno Devi Yatra and Char Dham Yatra in Uttaranchal featuring Gangotri – the origin of River Ganga, Yamunotri – the origin of River Yamuna, Badrinath Temple, and Kedarnath Temple offer much better comforts for the pilgrims. There are suitable places to sit, relax, eat and stay for a night after every few kilometers along with ‘palki’ and pony rides for invalid. A quick helicopter ride straight to the temples is available for some of the most popular temples too.
Haridwar, Rishikesh, and Varanasi are three of the most sacred cities that are not only important Hindu pilgrimage destinations but also centers of Hinduism Philosophy, Spiritual Transcendence, Ayurveda, Yoga, and Meditation. You will find famous temples in every nook and corner of these cities but Ganga Aarti in the evening takes away the cake for being the most delightful visual treat with thousands of lighted earthen lamps and flowers floating in the water and lakhs of people singing and chanting in unison.
