Yamunotri Temple Timings | The Abode of Krishna’s Fourth Queen

The sacred Yamuna River originates from Champasar Glacier, about 2 km further up in the mountains from Yamunotri. Access to that spot is difficult and most of the devotees cannot go there, so Yamunotri is considered as the origin. Puja and worship are done at the temple here.

Yamunotri is traditionally the first place to be visited on the Chhota Char Dham yatra. The Yamuna river is the physical form of Maa Yamuna, the fourth queen of Lord Krishna. Daughter of Surya Dev, Maa Yamuna was a part of Lord Krishna’s life from their childhood. She was a part of all His various ‘Leelas’ on earth. Lord Krishna had eight ‘Patranis’ and Maa Yamuna was the fourth. Explore Yamunotri Temple Timings
