Sri Yantra Tapu – Adi Shankaracharya Placed The Rock Upside-Down inside River Alaknanda

Sri Yantra Tapu, Srinagar, Uttarakhand, India

Dev – a guide, a friend, requested to stop the motorbike. We are between Kirti Nagar and Srinagar on National Highway 58. On the left-hand side is the 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 is able to see Sri Yantra again.

Wah – That is knowledge enhanced. Thank you very much, Dev Ji.

Shree Yantra Tapu Resort is a hotel on the right-hand side with a similar name – said Dev.
