Kedarnath, Gangothri, Badrinath & Yamunothri arre the four Dhams in hills. But the four temples viz., Rama temple at Ayodhya, Krishnas temple at Dhwaraka, Kashi Viswanath Temple & Prayag are also considered as Dhams.

Dham means Abode There are four Dhams of the Lords.At three of the Dhams Lord Vishnu and His Avatar Lord Krishna are woprshipped while at one Dham, Rameshwaram, Lord Shiva is the resident deity. The four Dhams are at the four points of the compass encapsulating the subcontinent of India in a cozy cocoon of security. To the Hindu the land of his or her forefathers is benignly watched over at all times by the gracious protector of all Lord Vishnu preserver and extenuator - and Lord Shiva - the forgetful benefactor - lost in fumes of cannabis but benign as ever.To the north is Badrinath, to the west Dwarka, to the south Rameshwaram and to the east lies ,Puri. These are the names of the places where the Dham temples are situated.
