Char Dham Yatra 2024 – Registration, Dates & Other Info

Prepare for the spiritual journey of Char Dham Yatra 2024 as the gates of three revered Himalayan shrines – Badrinath Dham, Kedarnath Dham, and Gangotri Dham – are poised to welcome pilgrims, signaling the commencement of this sacred pilgrimage in Uttarakhand.

The opening ceremony at Sri Badrinath Dham is slated for May 12 at 6 AM, while Shri Kedarnath Dham will open its doors two days earlier, on May 10, at 7 AM. Pilgrims from various parts of the country are expected to converge at these holy destinations to seek blessings and perform traditional rituals.

On the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya, the portals of Shri Gangotri Dham will also swing open. This revered site, known as the origin of the holy river Ganga, boasts a temple standing at a height of 20 feet, adorned with intricate carvings on white granite. Nestled amidst the majestic, snow-capped Himalayas, Gangotri experiences heavy snowfall between December and March.

The Char Dham Yatra, encompassing the pilgrimage to the four sacred sites of Badrinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri, and Yamunotri, holds deep spiritual significance in Hinduism. Typically occurring from April/May to October/November, this journey’s timing depends on weather conditions. The portals of these Himalayan temples, visited by millions annually, remain closed during the winter months due to heavy snowfall.

Char Dham Yatra 2024 Registration is currently open for Badrinath and Kedarnath Dham, while registration for Gangotri and Yamunotri Dham will commence after the formal announcement of their opening dates. Pilgrims can register online through the official website or via WhatsApp at 8394833833 by typing ‘yatra’ or calling the toll-free number 01351364. The registration process involves visiting the website, filling in required details, verifying identity through OTP, and uploading valid photo ID proofs. Upon successful registration, a unique registration number (URN) will be received via SMS, along with a downloadable registration letter for the Char Dham Yatra. The doors of Kedarnath are set to open on May 10, 2024, followed by Badrinath on May 12, 2024.
