The Karna Prayag is second in line and follows suit after Dev Prayag which is the location for the first of the Panch Prayag. Karna Prayags historical significance for the Hindu culture is that it is believed to be the place where mythological hero Karna of Mahabharata is said to have redeemed himself. Presently, it lies as a small municipality board in the district of Chamoli in the Indian state of Uttarakhand. It has a population of a little more than seven thousand and is surrounded on all sides by a continuous range of glistening mountains. Due to its deep rooted presence in Hindu scriptures it finds immense respect and recognition as a spiritual abode for many aspiring mendicants.
