Gangotri Dham

History


According to Indian mythology, After slaying the demons on earth The King Sagar decided to stage an Ashwamedha Yajna as a proclamation of his supremacy. For this, he sent his horse across the earth accompanied by his sons. The horse which was to be taken on an uninterrupted journey around the earth was to be accompanied by the King's 60,000 sons born to Queen Sumati and one son Asamanjas born of the second queen Kesani.

The King of Heaven, Lord Indra feared the power of King Sagar and to stop him, he stole the horse and tied it to the ashram of Sage Kapil , who was then in deep meditation. When the 60,000 sons saw the horse in Kapil's ashram they got furious and started to attack the hermitage. On hearing the disturbance Sage Kapil opened his eyes in anger and all the 60,000 sons of King Sagar had all perished by the curse of sage Kapil, except for prince Asamanjas. Bhagiratha, the grandson of King Sagar, is believed to have meditated to please the Goddess Ganga enough to cleanse the ashes of his ancestors, and liberate their souls, granting them salvation or Moksha.
