Yamunotri is the origin of Yamuna River. The place is basically famous for its thermal springs and glaciers. Yamunotri is ideally the first destination for starting the Chota Char Dham yatra. It is considered that Yamunotri Dham showers its blessings to the devotees to have a safe and unforgettable spiritual journey ahead. The temple here dedicated to goddess Yamuna is seated at a height of 3293 meters and along the gorgeous River Yamuna.
There is one quite substantial point near Yamunotri Dham that a hot water spring is located here named- Surya Kund where people boil rice and potatoes and distribute among themselves as the Prasad of Maa Yamuna. This kund has great spiritual importance. Some distance far rock is situated there which is called – DivyaShilla. This rock has got lots of importance in many Puranas especially in SkandPurana it has been mentioned that doing meditation at this rock provides an opportunity for the people to get spiritual freedom. This mythological tale has proved true to people.
Best Time to Visit
Being situated at a whopping height, Yamunotri Dham experiences extreme weather conditions just like every other Char Dham site destinations of Uttarakhand. Visiting Yamunotri Dham during its opening time in April is considered to be the best time to visit in case you want to experience its pure spirituality, devotion, and reverence of the goddess. The best time to visit is considered to be the month of April to June. Remember not to make any plans of visiting the Dham during the monsoon months of July to September since the entire region remains prone to unexpected landslides along with heavy and torrential rainfall.
