It is the highest and the most important temple of river Ganga which is worshiped as Goddesses of mother in India.

GAUMUKH

The terminus of the Gangotri Glacier is said to resemble a cow’s mouth, and the place is called Gomukh or Gaumukh (gou, cow + mukh, face). Gomukh, which is , which is about 19 km (11.8 mi) from the town of Gangotri, is the precise source of the Bhagirati river, an important tributary of the Ganges. Gomukh is situated near the base of Shivling; in between lays the Tapovanmeadow.

The Gangotri glacier is a traditional Hindu pilgrimage site. Devout Hindus consider bathing in the icy waters near Gangotri town to be a holy ritual, and many made the trek to Gomukh, with a few continuing on to Tapovan. One needs to trek from Gangotri till Gaumukh, passing Devgadh, Chirbhasa, Bhojwasa en route.

The 2013 North Indian Floods destroyed much of this trail, and access is now a little difficult beyond Chirbhasa due to trail deterioration and a 2 km wide rockfall site.

Mythology also states that Shiva proposed to Parvati at Guptakashi (on the road to Kedarnath) before they got married in the small Triyuginarayan village – the word “Triyugi Narayan” is formed of three words “tri” means three, “yugi” denotes the period of time – Yuga and “Narayan” is another name of Vishnu. Pilgrims have been offering wood to the fire in the havana-kund (fireplace) since the three Yugas – hence the place is given the name “Triyugi Narayan, According to Hindu mythology, goddess Parvati was daughter of Himavat or Himavan – the personification of the Himalayas. She was the rebirth of Sati, the first wife of Shiva – who sacrificed her life when her father insulted Shiva. Parvati initially tried to allure Shiva by her beauty, but fails. Finally, she won Shiva by practising rigorous penance at Gauri Kund, which is 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) away from Triyuginarayan

GUPTKASHI

Guptkashi is famous for the ancient Vishwanath Temple – dedicated to god Shiva – similar to the one in Varanasi. The other famous temple here is dedicated to Ardhanareshvara (a half man half woman form of Shiva and Parvati). Its religious importance is considered next to that of Varanasi, believed to be the most pious of all Hindu pilgrimage places.

It is believed that after the battle of Mahabharata, the Pandavas wanted to meet Lord Shiva and seek his blessings. But Lord Shiva avoided meeting them at Kashi and went incognito as the bull Nandi to Guptakashi in Uttarakhand, the reason being that although they had fought for the right cause, they were also responsible for destroying their own dynasty and brahamhatya. But Pandavas pursued him to Guptakashi and recognized him in the disguised form of Nandi. When Bhima, the second Pandava brother tried to hold the bull by its tail and hind legs, Nandi vanished from Guptakashi, into the ground (into a cave for hiding), but reappeared later as Shiva in five different forms namely, hump at Kedarnath, face at Rudraprayag, arms at Tungnath, navel and stomach at Madhyamaheshwar and the locks at Kalpeshwar. The vanishing act of Shiva gave the name Guptakashi (hidden Kashi) to this place on the bank of the Mandakini River. In the upper reaches of the Bhagirathi River, there is another Kashi, called the Uttarkashi (North Kashi)

Situated at the foothills of the Kumaon ranges of the Himalayas and at an altitude of 1938 metres above sea level is the town of Nainital in the state of Uttarakhand. Nainital has a very important place in Indian Mythology. According to a mythological lore, sages Pulatsya, Atri and Pulaha dug up a lake here when they found no water to drink. This lake they filled with water from the holy lake “Mansarovar” of Tibet. Hence this lake is also known as “the lesser Mansarovar”. Another legend has it that the eyes of Goddess Parvati fell here when her charred body was being carried by Lord Shiva, and hence the name Nainital, where Naini stands for eyes.

Nainital was discovered by the Britishers in the year 1841 as a favored health resort for escaping the summer heat of the plains. However, Nainital soon became an English preserve, with Indians present here only for laborious slavery. It was only in around 1925 when Britishers started getting subsidies for annual vacations to England did the British presence substantially decrease. Today, Nainital is flourishing as a much sought after hill station with British presence having totally disappeared.
