From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia

By Swami Harshananda

Caturdhāma literally means ‘the four abodes of God’.

The four places of pilgrimage in the four corners of the country are:

  1. Badarīnātha in the North,
  2. Rāmeśvara in the South
  3. Jagannātha Puri in the East
  4. Dvārakā in the West

These are the four dhāmas or abodes of God which every person aspires to visit during his life time.
