BADARINATH
The Himalayan abode of Sri Maha Vishnu

GARUDA GANGA

Almost all pilgrims with unbounded zeal visit this to collect pebbles supposed to have powers, counteracting the poisonous effects of serpent bites.

PANDUKESWAR

King Pandu is said to have performed penance here to expiate the sin of killing a sage, while sporting with his wife in the form of deer. The dying sage cursed him to die while in consortium with his own wife. The death of Pandu while in union with Madri, his second wife testifies to this.

VISHNU PRAYAG

The word Prayag indicates the meeting of waters - confluence of two or more rivers, or rivers with seas. Here Alakananda 'meets Deval prayag. Narada did penance here to fulfil his desire. According to tradition, Ganga flowed from the leg of Sri Mahavishnu. The episode took place in this spot.
