The source of River Yamuna, Yamunotri is also one of the four sites of Char Dham pilgrimage. Yamunotri is located at a height of 3293 mts above sea level and located in Uttarkashi district. It is surrounded by mountains on all sides and lies in close proximity of the Indo-China border.
Some of the prime attractions of Yamunotri are the Yamunotri temple built by Maharani Guleria of Jaipur in the late nineteenth century. There is a small hot water spring where rice and potatoes are cooked by pilgrims and served as prasad. Devotees also pay their respect to Divya Shila, a rock pillar just before entering the Yamunotri temple.
