Triyugnarayan temple, nestled in a small quaint village amidst the Himalayas is dedicated to Lord Narayan. This temple structure resembles Kedarnath temple and is very popular as this is believed to be the venue of Shiva and Parvati's marriage which took place in Satyayuga in the presence of Lord Narayan and other Gods and Rishis.
There is a Akhand Dhuni ( perpetual fire) which burns in front of the sanctum and it is believed that this Dhuni is burning since the divine marriage of Shiva Parvati.
Devotees worship the Gods in the sanctum and then offer firewood in the Dhuni and this ritual has been going on since three yugas hence the temple derived its name Triyug Narayan. There is a Brahma sila in front of the temple and this is the exact place where Siva-Parvati marriage was solemnised.
There are 3 natural springs inside the temple known as Brahma Kund , Vishnu Kund and Rudra kund and devotees sprinkle holy water from this kund on their head .
The serenity enveloping the temple, the amber glow of Dhuni, the recitations of mantras by the priests will help one to easily connect with the divinity .
This temple is 5 Kms from Gaurikund, the base camp for trek to Kedarnath.
As it is close to Gaurikund do visit and get blessed when planning a visit to Kedarnath temple.
Performance of marriage ceremony in this temple is considered very auspicious.
