INTRODUCTION

According to Hindu mythologies and myths, Char Dham signifies the journey to the moksha and a divine life after that. Chardham can be split into Char that means 4 (four) and Dham meaning pilgrimage place (destination). These four pilgrimage destinations are Gangotri the source of ancient river Ganga, Yamunotri, Kedarnath ji and Sri Badrinath ji, are considered to be the door to the spirituality and eternity. These 4 pilgrimages placed at Himalayan region in Uttrakhand India. Apart from religious beliefs, these dhams are majestic and very much mirror to the enriched Indian culture, ethos and traditions. Two holy and divine rivers Ganga and Mandakini add to the entire ambience. Nestling in the lofty peaks are the four most holy pilgrimages of India - Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath collectively referred to as the Char Dham of Hinduism. For centuries, saints and pilgrims, in their search for the divine, have walked these mystical vales known in ancient Hindu scriptures as 'Kedarkhand' (old name of Garhwal Region of Uttarakhand).
