Significance

To perform austerities and penance in order to attain salvation and ultimate happiness, people undertake this tour on a really large scale. These holy and sacred pilgrimages are a must. The term Char Dham was coined by the great Guru Aadi Shankaracharya which means the four abodes of God. It is known that the Lord resides here eternally.

History

    Badrinath became prominent when when Nar-Narayan performed penance here. This took place in the ‘Satyuga’ and hence it is the first Dham. In ‘Tretayuga’, Rameshwaram gained importance. It is believed that Lord Rama built a Shivlinga here and worshipped it faithfully. ‘Dwaparyuga’ made Dwarka popular. Lord Krishna resisded here for a long time leaving his birthplace, Mathura. The fourth dham, Jagannathpuri is also extremely famous for its Rath Yatra.
