Another holy shrine in the region on the way to the more famous Kedarnath temple, this temple and the adjoining pond also shares an ancient legend. It is believed that Paarvati –Lord Shiva’s wife (a manifestation of Goddess of Universe) used to live in this area and used this pond for bathing every day. Thus the hot water spring and the pool are considered to be sacred. Devotees believe that a dip in this holy pond is beneficent and will deflect all the negativities and misfortunes from one’s life.
The view of Kedarnath shrine and Mt. Kailash from this spot is beautiful enough to lift your spirits.
