Devprayag Tourism | Devprayag Travel Guide

Devprayag is a holy city in the state of Uttarakhand in Northern India. It is a site of the confluence of two rivers, Bhagirathi and Alakananda, before they flow out of here to form the river Ganga. Hence, Devprayag is a much-revered pilgrim destination of the Hindus. 

Situated on the metallic road running from Rishikesh to Badrinath, Devprayag lies about 87 km from Narendra Nagar. Many pilgrims embark on Devprayag tours every year. There are two suspension bridges near Devprayag - Bhagirathi and Alaknanda. The road to Badrinath crosses the former bridge by a third bridge.

Devprayag is significant as one of the five sacred confluences in the hills, and the site is hailed as a place of considerable natural and spiritual forces. A tour to Devprayag will introduce you to this holy town, which essentially marks the beginning of the sacred Ganges River. 

One of the major destinations to be visited while on tour to Devprayag is the sacred temple of Raghunathji - believed to have been built with colossal un-cemented stones about ten thousand years ago. 

The temple stands atop a terrace in the upper part of Devprayag town, and it attracts numerous devotees throughout the year. Also located nearby is the Dasharathachal Peak - featuring a rock known as Dashrathshila, which is supposedly the site where Raja Dasharath is believed to have led a life of penance.

Other must-visit holy areas in Devprayag include Baital Kund, Brahm Kund, Surya Kund, and Vasisht Kund; the Indradyumna Tirth, Pushyamal Tirth, Varah Tirth; Pushpavatika; Baitalshila and Varahishila; the shrines of Bhairava, Bhushandi, Durga and Vishveshvara; and a temple dedicated to Bharata.
