Uttarkashi, a place of profound spiritual importance, is graced with ashrams, temples, and the prestigious Nehru Institute of Mountaineering.

Much like Varanasi, Uttarkashi is nestled on the banks of the Ganges, beside the Varun Parvat hill, at the confluence of the Varuna and Asi rivers. It boasts the Manikarnika Ghat and a central temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.

The Vishwanath Temple, one of Northern India’s oldest Shiva temples, stands as a masterpiece of ancient architecture. This temple, at the town’s heart, houses a colossal iron trident symbolizing the divine mother, venerated for centuries. The temple complex also includes shrines for Ganeshji, Sakshi Gopal, and Markandeya Rishi. Visitors can partake in the Akhand Jyoti and Akhand Abhishek rituals, as well as special morning and evening aartis. According to the Skanda Purana, Uttarkashi is known as ‘Saumya Varanasi,’ the abode of Lord Shiva in Kaliyug, and is revered as one of the twelve Jyotirlingas.

Adjacent to the Vishwanath temple, you’ll find the Shakti Temple. It houses a monumental ‘Trishul’ (trident) standing at approximately 6 meters in height, with a base circumference of 90 cm.

Guptkashi, often referred to as the “Hidden Benares,” has a deep-rooted connection to Hindu mythology. According to legend, when the Pandava brothers were in search of a divine encounter with Lord Shiva, they first found him concealed in Guptkashi. However, Shiva later moved further up the valley to Kedarnath, where he finally granted the Pandavas their wish. There are also more tangible connections between the two places – the hereditary pilgrimage priests of Kedarnath, known as Kedarnath pandas, reside in Guptkashi during the winter months. Additionally, when the Kedarnath temple closes for the winter season, the image of Kedarnath is brought through Guptkashi on its way to Ukhimath, where it remains for the winter.

Sri Kedarnath Ji, the Kedarnath shrine, is a breathtaking location nestled against the backdrop of the majestic Kedarnath range. This sacred spot holds profound significance as one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. “Kedar” is another name for Lord Shiva, symbolizing both his role as the protector and the destroyer. According to legend, after emerging victorious in the Kurukshetra war against the Kauravas, the Pandavas were burdened by guilt for having fought and killed their own kin. In search of redemption, they sought the blessings of Lord Shiva. However, Shiva repeatedly eluded them. While trying to escape, he took refuge at Kedarnath in the form of a bull. The Pandavas pursued him, but he eventually dived into the ground, leaving his hump on the surface. The other parts of Lord Shiva’s divine form appeared in four different places, and they are venerated as his manifestations. His arms materialized at Tungnath, his face at Rudranath, his belly at Madhmaheshwar, and his locks, along with his head, are revered at Kalpeshwar. Kedarnath, along with the four aforementioned shrines, is collectively known as the Panch Kedar.
