The Abodes of The Lord of The Universe
A journey to Char Dham, popularly known as the Char Dham Yatra is of huge significance to the Hindus. The word Char Dham implies four abodes and includes four different Indian pilgrimage sites. According to Vaishnav Hindu priests, these four abodes of God are in four different regions of India i.e. Badrinath in the North, Dwarka in the West, Puri in the East and Rameswaram in the South.
Each person should plan on Char Dham Tour Packages at least for once in life to visit the sacred sites of the country. Most believe a visit to these four Hindu pilgrimage sites will wash away the sins of a lifetime. Saint Adi Shankaracharya believes a Char Dham Yatra will help any individual to gain salvation i.e. Moksha.
Char Dham travel packages conventionally journey to sacred Hindu sites forming a square, where Badrinath and Rameswaram lie on the same longitude and Dwarka and Puri lie on the same latitude. Badrinath is located at a height of 313 m above sea level in Uttarakhand dedicated to Lord Vishnu, while Jagannath Puri is in Odisha dedicated to Lord Balabhadra, Subhadra and Jagannath. Rameswaram is an island in Tamil Nadu dedicated to Lord Rama and the Dwarkadhish temple is in Gujarat, dedicated to Lord Vishnu.
Char Dham Yatra starts with your journey to the Badrinath in Uttarakhand, followed by the Jagannath Temple of Orissa in Puri. The name of the temple implies Lord of the Universe and is famous for Rath Yatra hosted yearly in July or August.
