Hinduism - Where Is The Karnaprayag Tirtha In India?


Karnaprayag is a Himalayan town and holy place (tirtha) at the confluence of the Alakananda and Pindara rivers in Uttar Pradesh's Chamoli district.

This, like all the other river intersections in the Garhwal area, is revered as a sacred site.

According to local legend, the spot was named after the Mahabharata hero Karna, who is said to have worshipped the sun here.

In exchange, he was given a coat of armor that could not be penetrated and an endless quiver of arrows.
