Char Dham

  • The Char Dham (meaning: four abodes) is a set of four pilgrimage sites in India.

  • It is believed that visiting these sites helps achieve moksha (salvation).

  • The four Dhams are, Badrinath, Dwarka, Puri and Rameswaram.

  • It is believed that every Hindu should visit the Char Dhams during one's lifetime.

  • The Char Dham as defined by Adi Shankaracharya consists of four Hindu pilgrimage sites.

  • These main 'dhamas' are the shrines of Lord Vishnu and Rameshwaram is a shrine of lord Shiva.

  • All the 'dhamas' are related to four epochs,

    • Dham of Satyug- Badrinath, Uttarakhand 

    • Dham of Treta Yuga -Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu

    • Dham of Dwapara Yuga - Dvaraka, Gujarat 

    • Dham of Kaliyuga - Jagannatha Puri, Odisha.

  • Another small circuit in Uttarakhand of four pilgrimage sites-Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath, and Badrinath is referred to as Chota Char Dham which is locally popular in North India.

  • Almost 80% of the deaths are related to medical issues, mainly cardiac arrests, and 20% due to accidents

  • Himalayan temples located averagely at a height of 10,000 to 12,000 ft

  • Pilgrims are not used to such high altitudes

  • They should be given a break in their journey at lower heights to help them acclimatize themselves
