NORTH INDIA CHARDHAM TOUR
Char Dham, literally ‘the four abodes’, yatra refers to the journey up the mountains to
four sacred temples in the North Indian state of Uttarakhand which are very sacred for
Hindu people. It is also referred to as ‘Chhota Char Dham’ to differentiate it from the
bigger circuit of Char Dham sites. The four temples that comprise Char Dham are
Yamunotri Dham, Gangotri Dham, Badrinath Dham, and Kedarnath Dham. This is a tour
plan for the traveler we like to visit all these sacred places or to explore the Hindu rituals
performed here by the devotee.
