Rudraprayag as such is a small town and just has a temple to boast of. it is used as a stop over and a halt before people proceed on yatras further into the mountains. there is nothing at all that one can do in this town. Food, sight-seeing....... More

Rudraprayag Info

  • State: Uttarakhand
  • Famous for/as: Pilgrimage
Rudraprayag is a small religious town in the holy state of Uttrakhand. The town is located on the confluence of rivers Mandakini and Alaknanda. The place is important because of its proximity to many important places of worship in the Hindu mythology. It is situated just 34 km from Srinagar in Garhwal region.

Rudraprayag gets its name from the word “Rudra” which means, an aspect of Lord Shiva. According to mythology, Lord Shiva appeared to bless Narad Muni as Rudra. Since then, the place has been a sacred place for Shiva worshippers.

Rudraprayag has a very pleasant temperature all the year round. Frozen glaciers, beautiful lakes and raw natural beauty, add to the diverse serenity of this place.  Rudraprayag has immense religious significance for pilgrims going in for the Char Dham Yatra to Kedarnath Dham and Badrinath Dham.

Koteshwar temple, located on banks of Alaknanda River is an ancient cave temple dedicated to Lord Shiva. Numerous naturally formed idols draw many pilgrims during the months of August and September. It is believed that before going to Kedarnath, Lord Shiva mediated at this place. Agatsyamuni, a temple dedicated to sage by the same name is just 19 km from Rudraprayag. Ancient temples of Ardhnareshwar and Vishwanath at Guptkashi have been important pilgrim sites for years.

Ganga and Yamuna join at the Manikarnik Kund. Lord Shiva is believed to have spent time at his gupt (secret) place to evade the Panadavas and hence the name. Winter residence of lord Kedarnath, Okimath is also situated just 40 km from Rudraprayag.

Surrounded by many renowned places, Panch or five Kedar lie in between the rivers of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi, this is yet another place visitors have an easy access to from Rudraprayag. According to a legend, this place was where Pandavas asked for forgiveness from Lord Shiva after the battle of Mahabharata ended. Kedarnath is another holy pilgrim place among Hindus that is situated just 86 km from Rudraprayag. Located at an altitude of 3584 meters from sea level, Kedarnath is covered with the snow clad Himalayan Mountains that give the place a mystic beauty.

Getting around Rudraprayag is a popular activity for the ample attractions surrounding this. These include Okhimath, Gaurikund, Son Prayag, Trijuginarayan, Shankaracharya Samadhi and others.
