On the pilgrimage to char dham, Yamunotri temple being the first of the char dham Temples. The sacred shrine Yamunotri, source of the Yamuna River is the westernmost shrine in the Garhwal Himalayas, perched atop a flank of Bandar Poonch Parvat. The chief attraction at Yamunotri is the temple devoted to the Goddess Yamuna and the holy thermal springs. The Yamuna, like the Ganges, has been elevated to the status of a divine mother. Close to the temple are hot water springs gushing out from the mountain. Surya Kund is the most important kund. Near the Surya Kund there is a shila called Divya Shila, which is worshipped before puja is offered to the deity. Devotees prepare rice and potatoes, tied in muslin cloth, to offer at the shrine by dipping them in these hot water springs. Rice so cooked is taken back home as prasadam. The pujaris of Yamunotri come from the village of Kharsali near Janki Chatti. They are the administrators of the sacred place and perform religious rites. The Yamunotri temple opens every year on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritya and closes on the sacred day of Diwali, the rest of the time the valley is gripped in no-man silence and covered with a white sheet of snow. With the melting of the snow next summer, the temple re-opens.
