              The old name of Uttarkashi was Barahat or Badahat. ‘Bada Hat’ means the Big Market. That means once, the place was prosperous and was whole sale market.
 There was severing earthquake in 1803 in Himalayan reason. The earthquake on early morning 1st September 1803 was felt from Punjab to Kolkata. Earthquake at Barahat or Badahat (30.72degree N: 78.48degree E) took the maximum ruins (Dasgupta et all, 2014, Indian Journal of History Science). The earthquake killed 200-300 inhabitants and kettles. F.V. Raper provided the details of dreadful earthquake in Asiatic Researches (Vol 11, 1812). Raper wrote about his visit of 1808 that the Town of Barahat (Uttarkashi) by no means fulfilled our expectations. The houses are destroyed by earthquake. A couple of houses are now built by those who were saved from earthquake.  There were ruins, bushes and trees around whole old town. Near the village, a Trishul or Trident was found that was of a temple before the earthquake. The pillar was saved but temple was demolished. There were ruins of temples and Dharamshalas. Parshuram Temple was now a barren place and its land was given to somebody.
