Chardham Yatra as the name implies it’s a tour of four famous pilgrims of Hindus. It’s the most popular holy ride to most beautiful and spiritual pilgrimage sites in India. The Tour or the yatra covers up Badrinath, Dwarka, Puri and Rameswaram. It is considered highly sacred by Hindus to visit Char Dham during one’s lifetime. The Char Dham defined by Adi Shankaracharya consists of three Vaishnavite and one Shaivite pilgrimages.
The other pilgrimages sites in the Indian state of Uttarakhand viz. Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath were known as Chota Char Dham to differentiate them from the bigger circuit of Char Dham sites, but after the mid-20th century, they have been also referred to as the Char Dham. Come and plan with us your Chardham yatra of 2016.
