Shodash Vishnu Darshan Yatra


Yatra Significance


[Sixteen Vishnu Darshan Yatra]

Lord Vishnu after motivating King Divodas* to renounce from the kingship of Kashi by his supernatural illusionary powers went to “Padodak Tirtha” where he washed his feet before entering to Kashi, while thinking about the uniqueness of Kashi when he looked towards “Panch Nad Titha”, he found his own Vaikunth Loka as dull and worthless in comparison to Kashi, He sent Garuna to call Lord Shiva. In the mean time, he saw a Great saint name Agnibindu sitting on prayer at Panchnad Tirtha. *For the Story of blessing given to Divodas and his renouncement from the Kingship, click here! Lord Vishnu became very much pleased by the worship and prayer of saint Agnibindu and blessed Agnibindu with the promised that he will get establish himself permanently at Panch Nad Tirtha under the name of Bindu Madhav.

The yatra is divided into two parts (two days) where on the first day, pilgrims will visit and worship eight out of sixteen Vishnu temples which will take approximately 3 to 4 hrs. Then, pilgrims will have the lunch break.
