Char Dham In India


There are four Vaishnava pilgrims defined by Guru Shankaracharya and every Hindu must visit there once in life which will help them to attain peace for the soul. Out of which, Badrinath is situated in the north, Dwarka to the west, Jagannath Puri in the east and Rameswaram Dham in the south. In Hindu mythology, Hari is called Vishnu while Har or Shiva is called Shashwat Mitra (eternal friend). It is believed that while Lord Vishnu resides, Lord Shiva also lives closer. These four Dhams are also not considered as exceptions. Therefore, the pair of Badrinath to Kedarnath, Rangnath Swami of Rameshwaram, Somnath is considered as a pair of Dwarka, Lingaraj appears as a complete pair although there is also a thing.

The fact required to be note down is that Char Dham of India and Char Dham of Uttarakhand state are different. Char Dham of Uttarakhand is considered as Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath Dham.
