The Pandavas, it is said, came here to perform the great 'Deva Yajna' to in agreement for the death of their kinsmen in the epic battle of Mahabharat.

Gangotri is an ideal location for the tourists looking for tranquility and escapade. Placed in the hills, downstream from Gaumukh is Gangotri. It is an important pilgrim site located a. Gangotri is situated in the northern part of the state of Uttaranchal and is very close to the Indo-Tibetan border. Gangotri glaciers, the original source of Ganges, draw tourists in large numbers every season. Besides the joy of exploring nature, what one experiences here is the mysteries of the vast natural world.

There is a temple At Gangotri dedicated to Goddess Ganga and the sacred stone where Raja Bhagirath is believed to have worshipped Lord Shiva. Submerged in the river here is the natural rock Shivalinga where Lord Shiva is believed to have received the Ganges in his locks. It is visible in the winter months when the water level recedes.
