Gangotri Temple
Ganges- the sacred river of India transcends into the earth to absolve the sins of human beings and this is the reason why the Gangotri basin bears so much of importance. Being the place of origin of this sacred river, Gangotri in Uttarkashi district is being determined to be the holy place for the devotees and is recognized as Shri Gangotri Dham where the shrine of Goddess Ganga is being worshipped by thousands of pilgrims. This 18th century temple made of white granite structure at the height of 20 ft attracts tremendous devotees to catch the holy glimpses of the divine stature of power- the holy goddess Ganges.

And, a natural submerged rock in the form of partial shivaling along the Gangotri Temple brings great significance to all where it is believed to be the same spot where Lord Shiva entangled the great waves of river Ganges in his matted locks. Experiencing Gangotri Yatra is the amazing feeling like never before and that can be shared during the months of May to June and September to October.

Gaumukh :

Gomukh, the terminus or snout of the Gangotri Glacier, from where Bhagirathi River originates, is one of the primary sources of theGanges River. The place is situated at a height of 13,200 ft in Uttarkashi district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is one of the largest in the Himalayas with an estimated volume of over 27 cubic kilometers. It is a popular Hindu pilgrimage site, along with Gangotri, as well as trekking destination. [1][2]

Gomukh is also referred to as "Gaumukh" or "Gomukhi" The word "Gomukh" (go + mukh) literally means "Mouth of a Cow". According to some sayings, earlier the snout exactly looked like "Mouth of a Cow".
