This place also is inhabited by sages, and in the past many did penance and obtained salvation. For penance, it is the most suitable spot. There is a story current in this part, that once a great sage by name Asit lived here. He was taking bath both at Yamunotri and Gangotri daily, and this he continued till reaching his ripe old age. When he could not go to Gangotri, a long distance for bath in his tattering age, Gangotri taking pity on him, emerged from a rock in a soft stream near Yamunotri for facilitating his daily bath. This place is held in high esteem since then. Besides this miracle, there occurred here another interesting episode, connected with Hanuman's life. The place where Yamunotri descended to this world is called Bundar punch monkey's tail. According to local version, it was here in this ice cool waters of Yamuna, Hanuman dipped his tail to extinguish its fire after burning Lanka, so held in veneration by all.

It lies in the Gharwal district of Himalayas accessible by was from Rishikesh.
