Suraj Kund, Gangotri Overview

Surya Kund is a spectacular waterfall in Gangotri, located 500 metres from the Gangotri Temple. Suryakund holds religious significance as it is believed that Goddess Parvati used to take a bath here, paying homage to the Sun God. A rainbow is created every time water falls down into the kund while the sun in shining. The best time to visit Surya Kund is during the morning.

On the other side of the iron bridge in Gangotri lies Gauri Kund, another stunning waterfall.  It can be reached through the walkway past the Tapovan Kunti and Dandi Kshetra ashrams.
