The Hindu religion regards the Chardham Yatra pilgrimage areas as dearly as the Christians hold the tour of the holy lands.

There are various sites for the Hindu pilgrimage package tour that are all under the Char Dham Yatra, India. They constitute the main Dham temples which are four in number, the Gangotri, Kedarnath, Yamunotri, and the Badrinath. The Hindu temples in these places are sacred shrines and habitations of god and goddess. The goddess Ganga is in the shrines and temples of Gangotri. Then Yamunotri is for the goddess Yamuna, Badrinath Yatra is for lord Vishnu, and then the Kedarnath is for lord Shiva. All these are the most sacred places of worship for the highly spiritual Hindu people. They are the spectacular worship areas where the Indian state of Uttradhand is the home of these shrines.
