Hinduism And Hindu Theology - Who Is Alakananda?




The Ganges River is formed at Devaprayag, where the Alakananda River joins with a second important tributary, the Bhagirathi River. 

The Alakananda River, like all of the Ganges' Himalayan tributaries, is considered holy. 


The temple town of Badrinath at the river's headwaters, its confluence with the Pindara River at Karnaprayag, its junction with the Mandakini River at Rudraprayag, and Devaprayag are all important pilgrimage sites (tirtha).
