Description

Discover the ten greatest tirthas of Hindus. Fascinating temple towns that are not just places of pilgrimage but sacred spaces resonant with myths and legends.

These ancient cities are the seven sacred tirthas of the Saptapuris - Varanasi, Kabchipuram, Haridwar, Ayodhya, Ujjain, Mathura and Dwarka and the four great dhaams of Badrinath, Puri, Dwarka and Rameshwaram, with Dwarka being both a puri and a dhaam.

These temple towns represent the finest examples of Indian architecture and continue to be centers of music, dance, sculpture, painting and crafts.
