Main tourist attractions in the Nainital trip
Yamunotri Temple– Yamunotri is the source of the Yamuna river which is one of the major rivers of India. Yamunotri temple is one of four temples in the Char Dham pilgrimage circuit. Guests also visit Janaki Chatti and Suryakund (Hot springs) and Divya Shilla, a rock pillar as part of the pilgrimage.
Kashi Vishwanath Temple Uttarkashi– Uttarkashi has a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva (Kashi Vishwanath Temple) in the center of the town and is visited by Chaar Dham circuit Devotees.
Maneri Riverside– A riverside area en route Yamunotri where many pilgrim camps catering to Chardham sector pilgrims are set up.
Har ki Pauri– Hark Ki Pauri (also known as Brahmakund) is where evening Aarti is conducted and the Aarti is nothing short of a spiritual experience for even a non-Hindu or a non-pilgrim. It’s kind of a crowded area and gets even more crowded once every 12 years when Kumbh Mela is held here.
Triveni Ghat– Evening aarti is performed at Triveni Ghat. Ashes of the dead and ceremonies related to Shradh are performed here. Triveni is also a bathing Ghat where pilgrims take a dip in the holy Ganga River.
Lakshman Jhula– Lakshman Jhula (1939) is a 450 ft hanging Rope Bridge on the river Ganges near the Tapovan area in Rishikesh. It connects guests arriving on the other side of the river to the bathing ghats area. It’s believed at this place Lakshman (Brother of Lord Rama) build a jute bridge to cross over the river and therefore the spot is also considered holy. A five-storey temple is built on the other side of the bridge.
Ram Jhula– Ram Jhula is bigger and more picturesque than Lakshman Jhula but surprisingly lesser-known. It leads to a few known Ashrams in the area.
