Char Dham in Uttarakhand is a collective term used for religous circuit covering Holy hindu pilgrimage centres of Badarinath, Kedarnath, Gangotri and Yamunotri. This is considered as most sacred religious places to be visited by Hindus, to get rid of their sins and pave path to ultimate goal of human life - the Moksha, ie redemption from cycle of birth & death in this world. Every Hindu is expected to perform the Yatra at least once in their life time. There is no restriction on visiting the temples for Foreigners, Women etc., Nor is there any strict Dress code, even though pilgrims are advised to dress decently.
