Triyuginarayan Temple – Goddess Parvati Gaura Married here with Lord Shankar

Tirth Purohit – Pandit Hiralal Sharma and I had seats in front of the holy fire as he narrated the History of Triyuginarayan Temple.

End of Tretra Yug King Himalaya and Maina married their daughter Goddess Parvati Gaura with Lord Shankar at this very location. The holy fireplace at present existed 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 (A way to propitiate the ancestors and free them from any unfulfilled desires) is also done if devotees are interested.

Folded hands and a few mantras chanted by the purohit-prayers and a small donation.

I walk further to watch the immense beauty around me. Will say if you are visiting Yamunotri you should visit Triyuginarayan village.

How to reach Triyuginarayan Temple from Sonprayag?

Once you reach Soneprayag on the left-hand side, there is a path going upwards into the woods is the way towards Triyuginarayan. I went there while driving a Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike. Four-wheelers also reach the 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.
