Chardham Yatra 2012-Ultimate Itinerary for the Annual Hindu Festival

By Rahul Ranjan Subscribe to RSS | December 26th 2011 | Views:

With an endeavor to revive Hinduism, the great Hindu reformer Adi Shankaracharya founded the Chardham Yatra during the 8th century AD. The name “Char Dham” rightfully refers to four abodes of the Almighty, namely Gangotri, representing Ganga-the godess of power, Kedarnath depicting the dwelling of Lord Shiva, Badrinath symbolizing the home of Lord Vishnu and Yamnotri signifying the godess of strength Yamuna. Housed at the Himalayan base of Garhwal (Uttaranchal), all the aforesaid locations find a great religious reverence amongst the Hindus and are associated with divine mythical legends.

Hindus believe that visiting the Char Dhams will obliterate thei1`r sins and exonerate their souls from the shackles of immorality. Hence every year, Hindus make headway and adore the Chardham Yatra by their presence. Though the calendar for the annual Chardham Yatra 2012 has not yet been revealed, it will possibly begin around the month of April, continuing right till Diwali.

The wide-ranging geographical aspects that will embellish the Chardham Yatra 2012 include Kempty fall Mussoorie, Hari Ki Peri Haridwar, Bandar punch view, Yamuna River, Sri Yamunotri Temple, Prakateshwar Cave, Kashi Vishwnath Temple, Shakti Temple, Sri Gangotri Temple, Bhagirathi River, Mandakini River, Tehri Dam, Sonpryag, Gaurikund Sri Kedarnath Temple, Sri Narsingh Temple, Alaknanda River, Dholi River, Adi Sankracharya Samadhi, Sri Badrinath Temple, Vishnuprayag, Ganesh Gufa, Byas Gufa, Saraswati River, Bheem Pul, Pinder River, Mana Village, Devprayag, Nandakini River, Rishikesh and Laxman Jhoola.

With this auspicious ceremony imminent in coming year, the tourism will see a grand boost with millions of tourists pouring in to enjoy the blessings of the Hindu deities. The hospitality sector needs to gird up their loins and be ready to face the inundation of disciples for Chardham Yatra 2012. It is beyond doubt that the hotels in Uttarkashi would be flooded with people, out to bask in the glory of the yatra.
