View Triyuginarayan Temple

“Triyuginarayan Temple” a hidden gem, we can say it is a lost temple, very few people know about this temple you will even not realise that you were so close to that temple after reading this blog, and I must say visit this temple once in your life. This temple is located at Triyuginarayn Village in Rudraprayag District, Uttarakhand, India.
We will come to the history of the temple later, but first let me tell you about, to whom this temple is dedicated to? Any idea? No?

It’s dedicated to Lord Vishnu, but our beloved god Shiva married goddess Parvati in this temple. Interesting? Actually I find it quite interesting too, it was just a “wow” moment for me when i heard this. I was like “wow” really?
A special feature of this temple is a perpetual fire, that burns in front of the temple. The flame is believed to burn since the times of the divine marriage. Thus, the temple is also known as Akhand Dhuni temple. The temple courtyard is also the source of a water stream, which fills three sacred bathing ponds (kunds) nearby.
Okay let me clear, all these facts that I write on my blog are from my personal experience, so you can tell me in my comment that you liked it or not. Happy reading.

HISTORY

If we look at the Etymology, the word “Triyugi Narayan” is consists of three words “tri” means three, “Yugi” denotes the period of time – Yuga and “Narayan” is another name of Lord Vishnu. It means from “three yug” this temple is here, and the flame that I was talking above is also considered as the divine flame. Pilgrims have been offering wood to the fire in the havan-kund (fireplace) since the three Yugas – hence the place is given the name “Triyugi Narayan”. Isn’t this interesting? The name “Akhand Dhuni temple” also originates from the eternal flame, “Akhand” means perpetual, and “Dhuni” means flame. It is believed that this temple had been built by Adi Shankaracharya.

How to visit Triyuginarayan Temple?

If you are visiting Kedarnath then it will be so easy for you to visit Triyuginarayan Temple because from Sonprayag it is approx 10 to 12 km. you have to hire a taxi. When I visited there it costs me about Rs.250 per head so try to be with your people so there will be no need to wait for the other people to fill the taxi. And if you to want visit directly to the temple then you have to take the same route from Haridwar to Sonprayag and then from there you can visit the temple, you can use your own vehicle to visit directly to the temple. Views are amazing, you will simply love it.
Favorable days are the same when you visit Kedarnath, mid April to October. I am adding some of my pictures during my visit to the Triyuginarayan.

Things needed?

There is nothing much you need in this visit, but still you will have to wear some warm clothes and it will be fine. On the other hand if you want to spend a night around the temple then there are some dharmsala that will help.

When to visit temple?

There is no fix timing to visit the temple, because when we reached Sonprayag for our Kedarnath Trek it was about 3 p.m. then we settle down and approx. 5 p.m. we took a taxi and visited the temple at 6 p.m. if you want to visit and come back on the same day then it will be ok.

Have a happy and safe yarta. HAR HAR MAHADEV
