Rudraprayag


A holy town and district located at the confluence of rivers Alaknanda and Mandakini which is one of the five sacred confluences in Garhwal Uttarakhand.
Legends believe that Lord Narad Muni worshipped here to please Lord Shiva in order to teach him the mysteries of music. Lord Shiva was pleased with him and appeared in his Rudra avatar and thought his music in the Rudranath temple.
