The temples of Lords Shiva and Vishnu at Kedarnath and Badrinath, respectively, and those dedicated to Goddesses Ganga and Yamuna at Gangotri and Yamunotri, respectively, have been venerated pilgrimages for centuries.

Once reached only on foot after treacherous treks, they are now easily accessible by road. These shrines popularly known as the 'Char Dham', open from mid-May till Diwali, and are visited by thousands of pilgrims, seeking salvation, during the season.

The shrines and the places on route to them are shrouded in myth that serves to enhance the powerful spiritual influence of the Char Dham.
