Yamunotri Temple, Uttarkashi, Uttarakhand

Chandra Mohan – one of the Panda (priest) around the temple shared the little known history about the temple as per query.

Yamuna And Ganga Goddess deity within the temple. Tularam Jalan – one of the devotee from Kolkatta (Calcutta) city along with Sitaram Murarka, Chotariya ji re-constructed the temple about 30 years ago as it was not in good shape due to bad weather conditions.

Holy river Yamuna is present within two forms: One is Hot water spring and another the flowing cold water close to the temple. The source of Yamuna river is Saptrishi Kund about 14 km far up within the Kalindi parbat (mountain) which is not easy accessible. Thus, devotees offer puja within the temple-area.

Thank you said I for the narration. Prayers.
