  • In Gaurikund taptkund doesn't have water at all.but maa Parvati temple is offered with daily poojas.a shivlinga is installed in this temple.its in the banks of Mandakini river.Kedarnath
  • Needs blessings from "Ma Gauri" before climbing to the Lord Kedarnath temple which is around 17 km uphill from this temple. Before the CLOUDBRUST disaster in and around the Kedarnath Temple area and entire northern Uttarakhand, the reservoir opposite to the Maa Gauri Temple has a continuously flowing hot water spring, called blessings of Lord Kedarnath. It has now disappeared from this place and reincarnated about 1km away from the Temple but on the opposite bank of the river, which can be said "The real Magic of Nature"
  • Maa Gauri Temple from where journey for Baba Kedarnath starts. 2013 cliemty had major impact and destroyed a lot of things
  • Garamgund(natural hot water stream tank,and parvathi doing penance in one leg.shiva temple
  • Beautiful Temple. Have darshan here before leaving for kedarnath trek.
