Muktinath Pilgrims Tour

Muktinath Yatraa

Muktinath is a sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists located in Muktinath Valley at an altitude of 3,710 meters at the foot of the Thorong La mountain pass (part of the Himalayas) in Mustang, Nepal. The site is close to the village of Ranipauwa, which is sometimes mistakenly called Muktinath. Within Hinduism, it is called Mukti Kshetra, which literally means the "place of liberation or moksh". This temple is considered to be 106th among the available 108 Divya Desam (premium temples) considered sacred by the Sri Vaishnava sect. The ancient name of this place in Sri Vaishnava literature, before Buddhist origin[clarification needed], is Thiru Saligramam. This[clarification needed] houses the Saligram shila, considered to be the naturally available form of Sriman Narayan the Hindu Godhead. It is also one of the 51 Shakti peeth. The Buddhists call it Chumig Gyatsa, which in Tibetan means "Hundred Waters". Although the temple has a Vaishnav origin, it is also revered in Buddhism. For Tibetan Buddhists, Muktinath is a very important place of dakinis, goddesses known as Sky Dancers, and one of the 24 Tantric places. They understand the murti to be a manifestation of Avalokiteśvara, who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. The central shrine of Sri Muktinath is considered by Hindu Vaishnavas to be one of the eight most-sacred shrines, known as Svayam Vyakta Ksetras; the other seven being Srirangam, Srimushnam, Tirupati, Naimisharanya, Thotadri, Pushkar and Badrinath. The temple is very small. Muktinath is one of the most ancient Hindu temples of God Vishnu. The murti is of gold and is tall enough to compare with a man. The prakaram (outer courtyard) has 108 bull faces through which water is poured. The sacred water that flows in 108 pipes around the temple complex denotes all the sacred Pushkarini waters (Temple Tanks) from all the 108 Sri Vaishnava Divya Desams, where the devotees take their sacred bath even in freezing temperatures. The worship is conducted by Buddhists, with a Buddhist monk present. A local nun manages the pujas (prayer rituals) in the temple. Pilgrims who go there are expected to offer a prasad (religious offering of food) to the deity.


Naimisaranyam, also known as Neemsar, Nimsar or Nimkhar is a Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu located in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.It is one of the Divya Desams, the 108 temples of Vishnu revered in Nalayira Divya Prabandham by the 12 poet saints, or Alwars. The temple is believed to be of significant antiquity with contributions at different times from the ruling kings. The temple is counted as one of the eight temples of Vishnu that self-manifested and is classified as Swayamvyaktha Kshetra. The temple is open till 6pm. The holy tank Chankra Kunda is associated with the temple and it is a pilgrimage centre where people take a holy dip during festive occasions. The Gods selected this spot to establish Dharma but Vrittasur, a demon, proved to be an obstacle whereupon they requested sage Dadhichi to donate his bones from which a weapon could be made to destroy the demon. The Bhagvat Purana mentions this place and calls it naimishe-animisha-kshetra or the abode of Lord Vishnu who is also known as Animisha. Lord Vishnu killed Durjaya and his gang of demons at this spot in a split second. He also destroyed Gayasura and cut his body into three parts with one part falling in Gaya in Bihar, the second in Naimisharanya and the third in Badrinath. The word Nimisha also means a part of a second.Nemi is the outer surface of a charka (wheel). Naimisharanya vana has a circumbulatory path of 16 km which encompasses all sacred places of India according to one belief. Naimisharanya is old as time according to legend and the significance of this place was given to saints. It is believed Satrupa and Swayambhuva Manu performed penance for 23000 years in order to have Lord Narayana be born as their son. Lord Rama performed ashwamedha yagna here to celebrate his victory over Ravana. Ved Vyasa put together the 6 shastras, 18 puranas and 4 vedas at this spot and it was here that the Srimad Bhagvatam was spoken out aloud at one stretch. The Pandavas and Lord Balarama, brother of Lord Krishna, visited this place. Tulsidas is believed to have penned the Rama Charita Manas here.


Varanasi, or Kashi as it is known among Hindus, is timeless with history stretching back 5000 years old, making it one of the oldest living cities of the world. For Hindus what is more significant is that it is one of the holiest pilgrimage places, the spiritual capital of India and a place where you wash away your sins in the River Ganga. If you die here, you go straight to Heaven. History Legend has it that Varanasi was the creation of Lord Shiva. The city is certainly old as proved by the excavations that put the date of the settlements to the 11th century BC. Varanasi is mentioned in the Atharvaveda. Lying on the trade route, Varanasi became an important centre for trade in silk, perfumes, muslin and ivory. Buddha and Buddhism have also left footprints in the city and the surroundings with Sarnath being an important centre of pilgrimage. During the 1st century AD Chandradeva of the Gahadvala dynasty established his capital here. The Mauryas also had a strong presence in the city that thrived as a centre of education, culture, religion and trade. Kabir and Ravidas started their movements in this city in the 14th and 15th century respectively. Guru Nanak Dev visited the city in the 16th century. Though Feroze Shah ordered destruction of temples in the 14th century, under Akbar, there was a revival in the 16th century with the Emperor himself being responsible for construction of temples dedicated to Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Aurangzeb did destroy temples and had mosques built on their sites but after his passing Hindus regained supremacy. The city has had a chequered and interesting history under various kings and under the British, who, if they developed the city, also earned a black spot for the massacre of Indian troops during the rebellion of 1857. Still, Varanasi today boasts of the Banaras Hindu University founded by Annie Besant as the Central Hindu College, exemplifying the coming together of various religions in this ancient city. Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and muslims confluence peacefully in this city by the banks of the three rivers. As the rivers flow, so does life in this eternal city.


For devout Hindus Allahabad has a special significance. Once known as Prayag, Allahabad has the unique distinction of being located at the confluence of the Holy rivers, the Ganga, the Yamuna and the now dried up Saraswati. Even Haridwar, Varanasi and Rishikesh cannot claim this distinction. Today, Allahabad is better known as an educational city, being home to IIT, MNREC and the Medical and Agricultural College in addition to a few major industries. Location The largest city in Uttar Pradesh in India, Allahabad is located at 25.45 deg.N and 81.84 deg. E, at a height of 98 metres above sea level in an area calls “Vats” since ancient times. To its East is the Middle Ganges Valley, to the West is Kaushambi, to the North lies Awadh and to the South lies Bagelkhand.


Ayodhya is an ancient city of India, believed to be the birthplace of Rama[2] and setting of the epic Ramayana. It is adjacent to Faizabad city in the central region of the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. Ayodhya used to be the capital of the ancient Kosala Kingdom. It has an average elevation of 93 meters (305 feet). Owing to the belief as the birthplace of Rama, Ayodhya (Awadh) has been regarded as one of the seven most important pilgrimage sites (Saptapuri) for Hindus. It is believed that the birth spot of Rama was marked by a temple, which was demolished by the orders of the Mughal emperor Babur and a mosque erected in its place. The Ayodhya dispute concerns the activism by the Hindu groups to rebuild a Rama's temple at the site. Valmiki's Ramayana, based on traditions dated to the fifth century BCE, centres its tale in a city called Ayodhya, the capital of Kosala. It was ruled by king Dasaratha, who is said to have been a descendant of Ikshvaku.[8][10] Rama, his son, exiled to forests, returns to the city after several travails, and establishes an ideal rule in the kingdom. According to Uttara Kanda, a later addition to the Ramayana, Rama divides the kingdom into North and South Kosala at the end of his reign, with respective capitals at Shravasti and Kusavati, and installs his two sons (Lava and Kusa) to rule them.[8] Rama himself enters the waters of the Sarayu river, along with all the inhabitants of the city, and ascends to heaven. The location of this mass suicide was the Gopratara Tirtha, according to the Mahabharata.[11] A persistent local tradition states that Ayodhya became desolate after Rama's ascent to heaven and a "King Vikramaditya" of Ujjain revived it around 50 BCE. (In Raghuvamsa, Kalidasa narrates that Rama's son Kusa revived it.)[12][13]
