Each Dham has its unique tale and spiritual significance according to the Hindu religion.

1st Dham - Yamnotri: (Dedicated to Yamuna Devi)

Char Dham Yatra starts with Yamunotri where the Goddess Yamuna is worshipped, which is considered a holy mother figure by the Hindu devotees. It is believed that by visiting Yamunotri Temple, offering prayers at the feet of goddess Yamuna, and taking a holy dip in river Yamuna, we will be able to get rid of all our sins and attend moksha from the fear of death. As for the tradition of the temple, the prasadam is cooked from the water of adjoining hot springs. These fuming hot springs can easily cook rice, pulses and even boil vegetables. This food is offered as prasadam to the devotees and is considered to be very holy.

As per Hindu mythology, Yamuna Devi is Surya Dev's daughter, her mother is Saranyu Devi and her brother is Yama, “ The God of Death”.

It is believed that by taking a dip in the holy waters of the Ganga river you will be free from all your sins. The holy water is also used for performing Puja rituals.

At first, the Gangotri temple was constructed by General Amar Singh Thapa - a Gurkha General in the 18th century. It was built close to the holy stone where Bhagirath prayed to Lord Shiva.

According to the Vamana Purana, two sons of Dharam, named Nar and Narayan, performed intense penance in the region where the Badrinath temple is located. These names are now given to two mountain ranges in the area. Their penance was for the well-being of all living beings in the universe.
