There are four holy shrines in Uttarakhand dedicated to Hindu Gods and therefore the holy rivers of India. The four shrines are situated within the Garhwal Region. The complete Char Dham contains Badrinath (Uttarakhand), Dwarka(Gujarat), Jagannathan Puri(Odisha), and Rameswaram(Tamilnadu) established by Adi Shankaracharya. Apart from that another small pilgrimage circuit in Uttarakhand is popular as Chota Chardham Yatra 2021. It embraces the holy places like the Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath that all lies inland of God, Uttarakhand. These are collectively referred to as “Char Dham of Uttarakhand“. The Char Dham (“four abodes”) may be a set of four (4) pilgrimage sites in India. Vaishnavite Hindus believe that visiting these sites helps achieve “Moksha” (salvation). It comprises Badrinath, Dwarka, Puri, and Rameshwaram. It is considered by Hindus that each Hindu must visit the Char Dhams during one’s lifetime. The Char Dham as defined by Adi Shankaracharya consists of four (4) Vaishnavite pilgrimage locations. The Char Dham Yatra remains open for the pilgrims for a period of six (6) months only due to inaccessibility in the winters. Usually, the Char Dham yatra onsets in the month of Vaisakh and ends in the month of Kartik according to the Hindu calendar.
