Bhim Patthar, Sari Village, Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand

Heera Singh Negi – owner of Tourist Nature Camp Stay upon query said yes, there is Bhim Patthar. Next day early morning we walking towards Bhim Patthar. Not too far from Negi’s  house. And the History of Bhim Patthar narrated by Heera Singh Negi as follows:

During exile in forest Pandava brothers were passing via Sari village at night time to reach Bamsu near Guptkashi where currently Banasura temple is. Bhim was carrying a huge rock to be used as stage but as they reach this very location it was day time thus he left the rock here only. Because Bhim was carrying this huge rock that is why it is known as Bhim Patthar.

There are only two ways to climb the huge rock and i.e., via naturally made steps. More than hundred people for sure may stand or sit on top of Bhim Patthar.

Really interesting. Thank you – said I to Negi ji for the tour.
