The Himalayan - born River Goddesses  


The fascinating names Gangotri and Yamunotri sound like twins, and feast the ears with their resonant cadences, aren't they? Their fantastic rhythmic combination tempts one to repeat it again and again to enjoy its melody. Their origin too has a characteristic divine aroma, very much to delight, elevate, and finally emancipate those who chant them, or enjoy its fruits. They are the heaven - dwelt, Himalayan-born daughters with quaint stories of their own, and a glorious past of character enviable. They are river Goddesses venerated from time immemorial, and much of India's cultural wealth owes its proud past to these adorable river sisters.

These two sonorous words are but the names of the mystic sources of two sacred rivers - Ganga and Yamuna nestled high up in the lofty snowcapped peaks, rising in splendor to glorifying the world famous Himalayas, piercing, as it were, into high heaven to display its snow white beauty and melodious flow of its crystal clear rivers. since the blossoming of intellect, highly evolved souls, swept off by their inexplicable tranquility have sanctified these places by their habitation and meditation.
