The Himalayan - born River Goddesses  


The present temple at Yamunotri was built in 1982 on the same site of the old one erected by Maharani Gulariar of Jaipur about hundred years back. The image of Yamuna is installed in the temple and it receives regular pujas with elaborate rituals. There are some hot water springs near the temple. Water always gushes out of the mountain cavities at boiling point and flows into pools down. Of them, Suryakund is the most important one. Almost all visitors enjoy their bath in the steaming water of this kund. The water is so hot that, a handful rice or potatoes tied loosely in cloth, dipped into it, they become completely cooked in a matter of few minutes. This cooked food is offered to the Goddess, and taken as prasadam too. Some highly orthodox, besides consuming there, take it home. A rock called Divya Sita is another object of veneration here. The yatris according to local practice worship it first and go to the Mandir for prayers.
