Garhwal Region
Rudraprayag

RudraparyagRudraprayag, named after Lord Shiva (Rudra), Rudraparyag is situated at the holy confluence of Alaknanda and Mandakini rivers, at a distance of 34 kms. From Srinagar (Garhwal). The meeting of the Mandakini and Alaknanda rivers has a unique beauty of its own and it seems as if two sisters were embracing each other. It is believed that to master the mysteries of music, Narad Muni worshipped Lord Shiva, who appeared in his Rudra Avtaar (incarnation) to bless Narad. The Shive and Jagdambe temples are of great religious importance.

Till recently, Rudraprayag was a part of district Chamoli and Tehri were conjoined to form Rudraprayag as a new district.

The presence of two separate routes for Badrinath and Kedranath Dham from Rudraprayag render great importance to the place. The entire region is blessed with immense nature beauty, places of religious importance, takes & glaciers.
