Gangotri temple, Uttarkashi district, UttarakhandMeditation: I meditate on the holy source of river Ganga at Gangotri, in the pristine Himalayan mountain ranges, which awakens the inherent purity of the soul.

Gangotri: Gangotri (3140 m) is the source of river Ganga (Bhagirathi) in the Uttarakhand Himalayas. The actual source is at the Gaumukh glacier a little further from Gangotri. Gangotri has the famous temple of Devi Ganga where Ganga Ararti is held in the evening. Gangotri is one of the Uttarakhand Char Dham.

Uttarakhand Char Dham: Gangotri is one of the four places of Uttarakhand Char Dham (Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri).

Temple of Devi Ganga: The temple of Devi Ganga is situated on the right bank of river Bhagirathi in the Gangotri village. There is a stone slab near the temple where king Bhagirath meditated to bring Ganga to earth. The stone slab is called Bhagirath Shila.

• Gangotri is located in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand.
