These shrines are located in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand and all Hindus aspire to go to these four shrines. The holy river Yamuna originates from Yamunotri, Maa Ganga from Gangotri, Mandakini from Kedarnath and Alaknanda, Saraswati from Badrinath. Badrinath is also one of the four destinations of the longer Char Dham from which the Chota Char Dham likely draws its name
