Mukhba – Winter Shrine of Gangotri

 It is a special place because every year, during Diwali, the idol of Goddess Ganga is brought down from Gangotri. This happens during the winter months when Gangotri becomes inaccessible due to heavy snowfall. They keep the idol in a temple in Mukhba to protect it. This tradition makes Mukhba an important and joyous spot, where people come together to celebrate the arrival of Goddess Ganga during Diwali.
