The Chota Char Dham is an important Hindu pilgrimage circuit in the Indian Himalayas. Located in the Garhwal region of the state of Uttarakhand , the circuit consists of four sites—Yamunotri , Gangotri , Kedarnath , and Badrinath . Badrinath is also one of the four destinations of the longer Char Dham from which the Chota Char Dham likely draws its name. While each of these sites is unique in its own fashion, inclusion in the Char Dham has, over time, caused them be viewed together in the popular imagination and in pilgrimage practice. The Annual Char Dham Yatra restarted in May 2014, after remaining suspended since the outbreak of 2013 Uttarakhand floods. The footfall has now improved due to proactive measures were taken by the government of Uttarakhand.
