Situated 914 meters above sea level, Nandprayag is believed to be the capital city of Yadu Kingdom in Dwapar Yuga. The legend says, King Nand had meditated at the confluence on a stone to lord Vishnu at this place. Lord Vishnu answered to his prayer and accepted to be his son but the same blessings was received by Devki, the sister of cruel King Kansa. To manage this situation, lord Vishnu took birth from Devki and was brought up by Nand-Yasoda. The stone in which King Nand meditated is used as the foundation of Nandprayag temple. The place derivves the name from King Nand who meditated at the confluence of Alaknanda and Nandakini rivers. Hindu devotees take a dip at the sacred confluence Nandprayag before entering Nandprayag temple to perform pooja (worship). The mesmerizing beauty of two sister rivers meeting at the confluence will remain in your mind all your life.
