Tourist Attractions of Gangotri

There are a couple of major attractions for tourists that keep them coming back year after year. The major tourist attractions of Gangotri are the following:

Submerged Shivling
The Shivling which is submerged in river water is a magnificent sight which reinforces the power of the divine God. Mythology has it that Lord Shiva sat at this spot to receive Ganga in his locks.

The submerged shivling is visible in the early winters when the water level goes down. The submerged Shivling is perhaps the most sacred spot where Ganga, the stream of life touched mother earth for the very first time.

Gangotri Shrine
Right by the side of the bank of Bhagirathi River stands the shrine of Gangotri. It is dedicated to the Goddess Ganga. Located at a height of 3,042 metres above the sea level, it is believed to have been constructed in the early 18th century by a Gorkha Commander named Amar Singh Thapa.

Each year, the temple sees lakhs of tourists visiting between the months of May and October. However, by November, Gangotri is covered in snow. There is the Gangotri temple located near-by the shrine. The temple is 20 feet in height and is made of exquisite white granite.
