Hinduism - Where Does The Mandakini River Flow?

 

Mandakini River is a Himalayan tributary of the Ganges River that enters the Alakananda River near the Uttar Pradesh hill town of Rudraprayag.

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

At its headwaters, Kedarnath, Guptakashi, and Rudraprayag are important pilgrimage destinations (tirtha).
