World's tallest Shivalaya, i.e. Tungnath Har Har Mahadev


 World's tallest Shivalaya, i.e. Tungnath Har Har Mahadev

Tungnath - The world's tallest Shivalaya, Har Har Mahadev What is the highest Shiva temple in the world? And do you know where it is located? That is Tungnath Mahadev, and it is a great temple located at an altitude of 90 meters (1908 feet) in Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand state. Tungnath means the same, Lord of the peaks. Har Har Mahadev.....

On the way to and from the temple, it snows in winter, so the temple is closed in winter. In winter, the idol of God, 15 km from Tungnath. Far away, Mukku is brought down to the Mukkumath of the village. Pujariji also comes to Mukkumath. The idol is taken to Tungnath at the end of April when the snow melts, then the temple remains open till mid-November. So if you want to visit Tungnath Mahadev, you should go there only in this period (summer).

Tungnath Mahadev, where to go, how to go? For this, first you have to go from Haridwar to Chopta. On the NH-58 road from Haridwar to Kedarnath, going to the banks of the river Ganga in the mountains of the Himalayas. From Haridwar come Rishikesh, Devprayag, Kirtinagar, Srinagar, Rudraprayag, Agatsya Muni and then Kund village. If we turn left from Kund, go to Kedarnath, don't go that way, go straight instead. On this road, after Kund, comes Ukhimath, Duggalbitta and then Chopta village. It is still 1.5 km from Tungnath. As far as climbing reaches the peak called Chandrashila. If you look at it like this, it seems that Tungnath is at the foot of Chandrashila peak. The height of Chandrashila is 3000 meters. Reaching Chandrashila means you have reached the top of a mountain.


There is also a small temple called Ganga Dham on this peak. How magnificent the view of Chandrashila can be felt only when you go there. From here you can see all the snow covered peaks and valleys towards Tangnath. Here is the place where Lord Rama meditated on Chandrashila after killing Ravana .
