History of Gangotri Dham:
It is believed that the stunning white temple of Goddess Ganga marks the spot where the holiest river in the heavenly as well as the earthly realm had descended. This iconic phenomenon took place after the continuous and deep penance which was performed by the king Bhagirath for his great-grandfather and his other ancestors who were still to attain moksha even after several years. After performing deep penance with devotion the goddess in heaven agreed to descend itself on earth and wipe away the ashes of his ancestors and provide them with moksha.
