India is a country having its own unique religion, history and culture. Chardham Tour involves the pilgrimages of four famous holy pilgrimages of India. These four pilgrimages are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Sri Badrinathji and Sri Kedarnathji. These places are referred as Dev Bhumi and millions of Hindu pilgrims visit these four holy places with a view to attain ‘Moksha’. Chardham Yatra was started by Adi Shankaracharya in 8th century. In order to attain salvation, every year millions of devotees register their presence for the famous Chardham tour. Entire four spots of Chardham are located in the lap of Himalayas. When you will visit these holy spots you will get the feeling of deep cleansing from deep inside of your heart.
