Yatra includes both thirthas - sacred places situated on the banks of sacred rivers on lakes or seas. and kshetras - holy spots at other places, situated on mounts  in caves,  amidst sequestered bowers, or underground. Normally temples are built in holy spots surrounded by lovely spectacles of Nature.

They not only lived there, but are abiding in spirit even to this moment and will remain eternally. Accordingly, might rulers and celebrated pravaktas built marvellous temples, utilizing the unparalleled skills of sculptors and architects. Their sheer visual appeal cast irresistible charm both on commoners and connoisseurs alike.

The temples thus built are mainly dedicated to Siva, Vishnu and Sakti  Other adorable personages too are venerated in several places.
