Dev – a guide, a friend requested to stop motorbike. We are in between Kirti Nagar and Srinagar on National Highway 58. On the left hand side is holy river Alaknanda and in the middle of the river is a huge rock known as Sri Yantra tapu.
It is said and believed whoever saw Sri Yantra (naturally present on the rock) in those days either becomes blind or died that is why Adi Shankaracharya with the help of local people placed the rock upside down inside river Alaknanda so that no one ever be able to see Sri Yantra again.
Wah – That is knowledge enhanced. Thank you very much Dev ji.
Shreeyantra Tapu Resort a hotel on right hand side with similar name – said Dev.
