    If you are looking for religious places in Uttrakhand then go for haridwar, badrinath, kedarnath, rishikesh, jageshwar, devprayag, gangotri and chitai.
    Haridwar: Revered as one among the seven holiest places of India, Haridwar that literally suggests the 'Gateway to Lord Vishnu' is cradled on the banks of river Ganga. Maha Kumbh is held at Haridwar every 12 years.
    Badrinath: Badrinath is the most important of all the four (Char) Dhams in India where lord Vishnu is worshipped. The temple remains open for 6 six months only and remains covered with snow for rest of the period.
    Kedarnath: The Kedarnath temple lies amidst the majestic snow-capped Himalayan ranges on the banks of river Mandakini and is thronged by lakhs of pilgrims each year.
    Rishikesh: Situated on the banks of the Ganges, Rishikesh is the only destination in the world which is equally popular for pilgrimage, Yoga and Adventure Sports.
    Jageshwar: The cluster of Jageshwar temples depicts the ancient culture and design. There are around 124 temples and hundres of statues in Jageshwar Dham.
    Devprayag: Devprayag is the last Prayag or the holy confluence of the Alaknanda River, from here that the confluence of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi River is known as Ganga.
    Gangotri:Gangotri Temple is one of the pilgrimage place amongst chota char dham and the origin of Bhagirathi (Ganga) River is at Gaumukh glacier which is at a distance of 18kms from Gangotri and one must cover the distance on foot.
    Chitai:Golu Devta is the cheif diety of Chitai temple who is famously regarded as "God of Justice." Devotees seeking justice throng to the place and several others write letters to Golu devta which can be seen around the temple.
