Do Dham Ex. Haridwar 5 Days (Kanpur to Haridwar by Train or by Bus or Private Car)

In our busy schedule it is quite difficult to take the leaves for 10 to 15 Days to complete the Chardham Yatra in Uttarakhand. So many people opt to visit Charham Yatra in Parts. They opt for Do Dham Yatra at once which could be covered within a week. Generally Do Dham Yatra refers to visit any two Dham from the four Dhams which are Yamunotri, Gangotri, Kedarnath & Badrinath. But Do Dham Yatra is mainly considered as the Yatra to Kedarnath and Badrinath Temples. Badrinath is the place sacred to Vishnu Bhagwan in the dual form of Nar Narayan while Kedarnath is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga’s of Lord Shiva. According to Hindu mythology, Hari (Vishnu) and Hara (Shiv) are referred as eternal friends. It is said Lord Vishnu & Lord Shiva always resides nearby. The Chardham follow this rule. So Kedarnath is considered as the pair of Badrinath, Rangnath Swami is considered the pair of Rameswaram. Somnath is considered as the pair of Dwarka. However one thing is also to be noted here that according to some traditions the Char Dham are Badrinath, Rangnath-Swami, Dwarka and Jagannath-Puri all the four of which are Vaishnav sites and their associated places are Kedarnath, Rameswaram, Somnath and Lingaraja Temple, Bhubaneswar (or may be Gupteshwar) respectively.
