GANGOTRI & YAMUNOTRI 
 
The Himalayan - born River Goddesses  

GANGOTRI

Gangotri, the source of the much venerated Ganga boasts of many a superior virtue, many plus points, a grandeur niche, and a wider canvas. The water gushing out from the Himalayas at the place, where Bhagiratha did penance is actually the very same water that flowed down from the Kamandal of Brahma, used to washing the feet of Srimannarayana, when he measured the world with his gargantuan feet during his Vamanavathar, incarnated to send Balichakravarthi to nether world, and was let fall from the Maheswara's jata. So, before descent to the mortal world, the water has pious association with the Trio. A deep peep is a necessity at this stage.

At the soulful prayers of Mrikandu Maharshi, Lord Srimannarayana gave to the sage, the darsan of the self-same cosmic form, he assumed to measure the universes he got from Balichakravarthi as gift. So enchanting, and gigantic was the form that Brahma made abhishekam to His enormous feet with water from his Kamandal. The water that fell from his lotus feet became so sacred that it could drive the yamadutas at the very sight of those who sip them.
