Gangothri is the mythological source of River Ganga ,here called as Bhagirathi because this is the spot where King Bhaghirath did penance for years to please Lord Brahma to release Ganga from his Kamandal, then further performed greater austerities standing on 1 leg to Lord Shiva to hold her in his matted locks not to destroy earth. “Bhaghirath Shila”is the reef on which Bhaghirath meditated can be seen here.
