Yamunotri during Winters

The Yamunotri shrine is closed to the public for winter on Bhai Dooj with vadic chanting. This signal the start of the closure of the Char Dham shrines in Uttarakhand for the winters season.

When the temple closes for the season, Yamuna’s doli is taken to Kharsali (with pomp and rituals) where the pandits and purohits spend the winter months and where she is worshipped for these months. Yamunotri will reopen in the months of April/May next year.
