Tirth purohit – Pandit Hiralal Sharma and I having seats in front of the holy fire as he narrated history of the temple.
End of Tretra Yug King Himalaya and Maina married their daughter Goddess Parvati Gaura with Lord Shankar at this very location. The holy fire place at present existing since the time of God Goddess marriage.
Panch-Devta: Lord Ganesha, Annapurna mata, Bajrang Bali, Ishaneshwar, Lord Shankar deities and the temple structure is said to be built by Adi Shankaracharya.
Pitra Tarpan is also done if devotees are interested.
Folded hands and few mantra chanting by the purohit-prayers and a small donation.
I walk further to watch the immense beauty around. Will say if you are visiting Yamunotri you should visit Triyuginarayan village.
Once you reach Soneprayag on the left-hand side there is a path going upwards into woods is the way towards Triyuginarayan. I went there while driving Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike. Four wheelers also reach village – do not worry but yes, the 12 km path is dense jungle. I was driving solo as usual and saw more than twenty Gray Langur sitting on the driving path.
