Photographer's Note

Hello friends,

I visited Karnaprayag in the month of October, 2012 via Srinagar and Rudraprayag. It is one of the Panch Prayag (five confluences) of Alaknanda River, situated at the confluence of the Alaknanda and Pindar River. It is one of the holy places of Hindu pilgrimage. Karnaprayag is believed by many to be the place where Karna of the Mahabharata, was to have worshipped the Sun God. It is the ancient temple, devoted to Uma and Karna. It is said that Karna of Mahabharata meditated here for many years to acquire the impregnable shield, which made him a formidable warrior in the battlefield.

I had an opportunity to take an image.

with best of all,

swapankumarroy
