Visiting Gangotri for a religious tour is not only a religious duty but a spiritual calling too. It main attraction is Gangotri Temple which is surrounded by a town named Gangotri and also one of the four must visit pilgrimage sites of Hindu religion. The temple holds very special place in the hearts of the Hindu pilgrims. Between all the natural beauty grace makes Gangotri one of the most sacred places. It is clasped in the heart of Uttarkashi and is located nearby the Indo-Tibetan border. It is the most accredited temple of river Ganga in all over the country. The place where temple is situated is a perfect one to enrapture in the peace and holiness as the place has a picturesque landscape. This heavenly place offers scenic outlook of rugged terrains, gushing water of Bhagirathi River and snow clad peaks. Due to heavy snow fall in the region in winters the Kapats (doors) remains closed and gets opened in summers. But during closing period pilgrims can visit Kharsali Temple as it is the winter seat of the deity.
There is very popular mythological tale associated with Gangotri. So the story state that the great grandfather of king Bhagirath wanted to extend his empire for that he performed Ashwamedha Yagya. While performing the Yagya he left his horse free to roam across the empire. And then, he sent his 60 thousand sons to find the horse. They found the horse near sage Kapila where he was meditating. They broke the meditation of sage kapila and accused him of stealing the horse. Sage got angry and converted all the 60 thousand sons into ashes and cursing them that they will attain heaven only when the ashes will be sown in the holy water of the Ganga River (which used flow only in heaven). Bhagirath did tough penance and impressed goddess Ganga and convinced to flow on earth so that his ancestors could get ‘Moksha’.
The main shrine which we see and visit today was built by the Gorkha Commander and rebuild by the Maharaja of Jaipur. It is also the base point of some trek routes like Tapovan, Bhojwasa, Gangotri Glacier, Gaumukh,Gangotri National Park, Shivling Peak etc. Some of the popular places of interest in and around Gangotri town are Gangotri Temple, Bhagirath Shila, Pandava Gufa, Tapovan, Bhairon Ghati, The Gaumukh Glacier and the submerged Shivalinga.
Gangotri is perched at an elevation of 3000 mt. above the sea level so there are many places where one can trek and enjoy the amazing view of Himalayan. And there are many shops which sells miniatures of idols of the deities and other devotional items. One can also buy local handicrafts which includes shawls, woollens, religious paintings and Tibetan artefacts from there.
