Home to a myriad holy shrines, the name Uttarakhand is aptly associated with Devbhumi i.e. Land of Gods. Pilgrims from far and wide visit this Himalayan state, seeking salvation and self-purgation. Two of the most revered rivers of the country, namely Ganga and Yamuna originate from Gaumukh (Gangotri) and Yamunotri. The most esteemed pilgrimage circuit of the country incorporates Shri Badrinath and Shri Kedarnath, the holy seats of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva respectively. Another prominent pilgrim-destination in Uttarakhand is the holy town of Haridwar, where the prestigious Kumbh Mela is held every twelve years, attracting millions of devout people from all over the world.
