Triyuginarayan is a famous place of Hindu worship that is located in the Rudraprayag District of Uttarakhand. Situated at the height of 1,980 metres above the sea level, the popular tourist attraction is perhaps the most well known for its Triyuginarayan Temple, which is a Hindu temple that is dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The name of the temple "Triyugi Narayan" is made up of three different words: Tri means three; Yugi denotes Yuga and Narayan refers to Vishnu. This basically means that people have been offering woods to the holy fireplace since three Yugas at this particular site.
It is believed that Shiva and Parvati married at this particular place, and this holy union was witnessed by Lord Vishnu. This rich mythological association is what makes the temple so famous and well known all across the country. Another distinctive feature of this temple is the constant fire that burns in front of this temple. It is believed that this fire has been burning since the times of the divine marriage, and hence the temple is also known as the Akhand Dhuni Temple.
The uniqueness of the temple lies in the fact that devotees can worship Lord Vishnu, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi at a single place. Since Lord Brahma also witnessed the marriage, the temple completes the trinity of the Hindu Gods, that is Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. The temple also has the idols of Lord Hanuman, Lord Vinayaka, Garuda and Annapurna Devi in it. One can also find four sacred ponds or Kunds which are filled with fresh water in the temple. Complete with its rich mythological associations, scenic views and tranquil environment, the Triyuginarayan Temple is a must visit place for all devotees.
