Chardham Yatra 2018 Travel Tips - Yamunotri temple

Chardham Yatra Travel Guide - Yamunotri Yatra Located opposite Gangotri is the sacred shrine of Yamunotri which is also the source of River Yamuna. Surrounded by mountains, the actual source of the river, a frozen lake and a glacier (Champasar) located at an altitude of 4421m is inaccessible. For this reason the shrine is placed at the foot of the hill. The shrine is dedicated to Goddess Yamuna and the deity is made of black marble. The sanctity of the place combined with an ambience of absolute purity and bliss creates a deep feeling of reverence.

Every year the temple opens on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya which is either in the last week of April or first week of May. The temple closes for the year on Diwali which is either in October or November. The darshan timings are from 6am to 8pm while the evening prayer is held between 6.30pm and 7.30pm.
