Uttarakhand.. This place is known for its scenic beauty, large glaciers, Beautiful hill stations. And I also has desired to visit the place because of these reasons only but the day I landed the place, it was full of mythological stories for me, for me all the stories that I have heard since my childhood were like coming true and each story was relating itself to other in such a way that I believed "yes, all the mythological character had existed and all those stories are not mere stories, they have their existence and all those places have witnessed the same". All the thanks to my taxiwala who had also become our storyteller.
After reading so much about Chopta, I also decided to visit the place during my 3 days holidays but all the thanks to snowfall, my taxi was not able to cross dugalbitta and we were stuck on road and my taxi wala all the way was telling us all the exciting stories related to uttarakhand so we ditched Chopta ;) and give uttarakhand a chance to show us all those mythological incidents that took place here centuries ago.
The first place of our so called adventurous trip was A Ukhimath, is a pilgrimage site in Rudraprayag. During the winters, the idols from Kedarnath temple and Madhya Maheshwar are brought to A Ukhimath and worshipped there for six months.Ukhimath can be used as centre destination for visiting different places located nearby, i.e. A Madhmaheshwar (Second kedar), Tungnath ji (Third kedar) and Deoria Taal(natural fresh water lake) and many other picturesque places. Wedding of Usha (Daughter of Vanasur) and Anirudh (Grandson of Lord Krishna) was solemnize here. By name of Usha this place was named as Usha Math, now known as A Ukhimath. King Madhanta penances Lord Shiva here. During winter the Utsav Doli of Lord Kedarnath is brought from Kedarnath to this place. Winter puja of Lord Kedarnath and year round puja of Lord Omkareshwar is performed here
The 2nd place I visited was Deoria Tal, it is considered to be a pond dedicated to vasuki naag (naag of Lord Shiva). A picturesque place and beautiful mountains can make you fall in love with this place
( UTTRAKHAND IS THE MOST BEAUTIFULL PLACE IN INDIA )
