A Hindu pilgrimage town in Uttarkashi district in the state of Uttarakhand, Gangotri is situated on the banks of river Bhagirathi. Deeply associated with Goddess Ganga and Lord Shiva, the town is part of the Char Dham.
It is associated with an intriguing mythological legend, where Goddess Ganga, the daughter of heaven, manifested herself in the form of a river to acquit the sins of King Bhagiratha's predecessors. Following which, Lord Shiva received her into his matted locks to minimise the immense impact of her fall. The river Ganga originates from a glacier in Gangotri and is known as Bhagirathi at the legendary source. It assumes the name Ganga after the merger with river Alaknanda. The sacred town is thronged by devotees for its significance in Hindu mythology and the serene aura and calm it offers. The mystical Bhavishya Badri in Gangotri, can be reached after a strenuous trek to the holy spot and is held in high reverence by the pious. The actual source of this river is the ice cave of Gaumukh.
