Places to see in Deoprayag

Every day the devotees congregate at the temple to pay obeisance, after taking bath in the holy confluence. The walls of the temple display exquisite sculptures that shows Buddhist influence.
  • Bharat Mandir

    Relatively unknown, but this small temple is a beautiful example of hill temples. Named after Bharat, Rama's younger brother. The bigger Bharat temple is at Rishikesh, but it is also much revered. Historically, after the muslim invasion in north India, the priests left the holy city of Rishikesh and the idol was placed here for several centuries. Later it was taken to its original location, Rishikesh. Its worth visiting, to feel the pulse of Hindu mythology and beliefs.
