The Gosaikunda area has been delineated as a religious site. Hindu mythology attributes Gosainkunda as the abode of the Hindu deities: Lord Shiva and Goddess Gauri. The Hindu scriptures “Bhagavata Purana” and “Vishnu Purana” and the Hindu epics “Ramayana” and “Mahabharata” refer to Samundra Manthan, which is directly related to the origin of Gosaikunda. Gosaikunda is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva by thrusting his Trishul (Holy Trident) into a mountain to extract water.
