Visiting Gangotri and Yamunotri together is a cherished dream of many pilgrims. Not only is the two shrines representative of the reverence with which nature is held in Indian traditions, but also of how Shakti expresses herself in the myriad ways of the corporeal universe – herein, Mother expresses herself in the mighty flow of River Goddesses of Ganga and Yamuna. Yamunotri Dham is visited before Gangotri in a typical do dham Yatra. River Yamuna is the cherished sister of Shani Dev and Yam Dev, while also the daughter of Surya Dev and Sandhya Devi. It is widely believed that procuring her blessings would please Yam Dev, the God of Death, and would ensure a pain-free death and afterlife. Need one even attempt explaining the importance of Gangotri Dham? The holy river Ganga is worshipped as the Great Mother who can wash away all sins by millions of Indians. And what can one say of the holiness attributed to the origins of such heavenly river? In fact, legend has it that King Bhagirath underwent penances for thousands of years to bring down the flow of heavenly river Ganga upon earth so that the curses upon his deceased ancestors could be erased away.
