Char Dham Yatra
The Char Dham refers to the “four abodes”, which is a set of four pilgrimage places in India. Hindus in India especially the Vaishnavite believe that visiting these places will help them to attain “Moksha” (salvation). Char Dham as defined by Adi Shankaracharya comprises of four Vaishnavite pilgrimage center.
Badrinath in Uttarakhand, Dwarka in Gujrat, Jagannath Puri in Orissa and Rameshwaram in Tamil Nadu are the four sites which come under the Char Dhams. There is one more circuit of pilgrimage sites which altogether is known as the Chota Char Dham. All these places are present in Uttarakhand. Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath are the four sites which form the Chota Char Dham circuit. The name Chota Char Dham is given so that people can easily differentiate between the bigger and the smaller ones.
During winters, the sites of Chota Char Dham are closed due to the weather conditions. During winters these places face snowfall, hence they remain closed. But on the onset of summer, these sites are opened again.
To make the journey easier for the pilgrims, the Chardham Mahamarg Vikas Pariyojna was inaugurated on 23rd December 2016. This project helps to resolve the traveling problems and makes the tour an easy task for all the Hindu pilgrims.
The literal meaning of Ashtavinayak is “eight Ganesha”. Ashtavinayak darshan is one of the holiest trips for Hindus. The reference of Ashtavinayak trip is to the eight Ganesha temples present in Maharashtra. All the eight temples are situated at different locations in Maharashtra.
The eight pilgrimage site consists of eight different idols of Lord Ganesha. There is a sequence which has to be followed while visiting these sites. All these sites are almost situated around Pune and each of them has its own history and a legendary story behind it. The speciality of all these sites are each idol has a different structure of Lord Ganesha’s trunk and each of them looks different.
The belief is that after visiting all the sites at once again the first one should be visited in order to complete the yatra. The order of visiting each temple is as follows.
1) Moreshwar Temple – Morgaon, Pune district
2) Siddhivinayak Temple- Sidhhatek, Ahmednagar district
3) Ballaleshwar Temple – Pali, Raigad district
4) Varadavinayak Temple- Maha, near Khopoli, Raigad district
5) Chintamani Temple- Theur, Pune district
6) Grijatmaj Temple- Lenyadri, Pune district
7) Vighneshwar Temple- Ozar, Pune district
8) Mahaganapati Temple – Ranjangaon, Pune district
The journey is started at Moreshwar temple and goes one after the other on till Mahaganpati temple. But after the Mahaganpati temple, it is mandatory to go to Moreshwar temple again in order to complete the yatra.
The belief is that these idols are not man-made, they were naturally formed. Because of the belief, these idols are known as Swayambhu, which in Sanskrit means self-existent. Hence, the name totally compliments the reason.
Jyotirlinga is a holy representation of God Shiva. The term Jyotirlinga is coined with two words, where Jyoti means “radiance” and lingam means “image” of Lord Shiva. Hence, the meaning Radiant Sign of the Almighty Shiva is the true meaning of the word. There are twelve Jyotirlinga sites in India.
The twelve Jyotirlingas are:
- Somnath in Gir Somnath, Gujarat
- Mallikarjuna in Srisailam, Andhra Pradesh
- Mahakaleswar in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh
- Omkareshwar in Khandwa, Madhya Pradesh
- Kedarnath in Rudraprayag, Uttarakhand
- Bhimashankar in Maharashtra
- Vishwanath in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh
- Trimbakeshwar in Nashik, Maharashtra
- Vaidyanath in Deogarh, Jharkhand or Baijnath in Himachal Pradesh or ParliVaijnath in Maharashtra
- Nageshvara in Dwarka, Gujarat
- Ramanathaswamy in Rameshwaram, Tamil Nadu
- Grishneshwar in Ellora, Maharashtra
All these sites are special because they symbolize the nature of Lord Shiva. So to see different avatars of Lord Shiva visiting each place in the list is mandatory.
