Char Dham are the four abodes of God in the four directions of India - Puri in the east, Rameshwaram in the south, Dwarka in the west, and Badrinath in the north. They were collated by the 8th century reformer and philosopher Adi Shankaracharya, into the archetypal all-India pilgrimage circuit to the four cardinal points of the Indian subcontinent in a bid to unify people across the region

The cross-country Char Dham defined by Adi Shankaracharya consists of three Vaishnavite and one Shaivite sites. Over the years, the term "Char Dham" has lent itself to the all-denomination Char Dham pilgrimages in the Garhwal Himalayas, where Adi Shankaracharya attained freedom from embodiment. Earlier known as Chota Char Dham or 'Little' Char Dham to differentiate them from the bigger circuit of Char Dham sites, after the mid-20th century they themselves started being called the Char Dham,Today, the term "Char Dham" usually refers to the all-denomination Himalayan Char Dham.

The Char Dham are often considered the most revered sites for Hindus that have to be visited in one's lifetime.
