Gangotri Temple History

The Ganges is near the Gangotri, which is about 50 or 60 feet wide. Originally Ganga first landed on the ground near Gangotri. But as the sin of humanity has increased in the Kaliyug, the Ganga is going back a little bit, and so far it goes back to the place called Gomukh, and the word of scholars that it is totally disappearing even when the Kaliyuga is complete.

From Gomukh, this Ganga flow to the Gangotri, which is just a baby on earth from the mother’s womb. The water in the stream is somewhat of human touch until it grows from Gangotri. Thus, Abhishekam, a Ramalingeswara Swami in Rameswaram, will be made with water from Gangotri. On the banks of the ghats, the main street on the banks of the river is the Ganga Mata’s holy temple.
