Yatra - literally meaning a journey - is a term used to describe a religious journey or a pilgrimage. Originally a Sanskrit word, yatra in certain Indian languages also denotes an arduous and long pilgrimage undertaken on foot. For Hindus, yatras to Char Dham and Amarnath Yatra are considered very sacred. The Chaumu Temple Yatra of Uttaranchal and Kullu Dusshera Yatra of Himachal Pradesh are popular socio-religious events.
